Thanks for reminding me of a recipe I used to make years ago from an old Betty Crocker cookbook - "Cooking for Two". Similar to the above "Peas on Toast" recipe, it added a can of drained salmon, some sliced black olives, & a sprinkling of dill. Was served over toasted English Muffins. Was really quite good. And around here, canned salmon is pretty much the same price as tuna - even cheaper when it's on sale. What's more, the canned salmon here is all "wild" salmon - not farmed - & is not only better for you, but more environmentally responsible.

pecanis, that pic looks good and does the recipe a lot of justice.

My mom would cream peas with diced cooked potatoes. Boy were they good. I hadn't thought about doing just peas or putting it over toast. Will have to try that sometime.

Actually, what I do, & it's much nicer than just plain toast, is to spoon dishes like this (creamed vegetables, veggies & fish, veggies & poultry, etc.) over a couple of those Pepperidge Farm puff pastry "patty shells". They last virtually forever in the freezer & you just take out & use what you need for each meal. Elevates budget-minded ingredients to new heights.

Mmm.. creamed peas on toast sounds like a great cold weather recipe. I'd mix in some crumbled bacon pieces I think. Bacon just seems to make anything better.

Great idea, mr. M! Peas and bacon - a delicious combination!

You will fit right in with all the bacon-ophiles here (including me!)

I forgot all about this dish!

Another one is the same method, but as Chipped Beef. My nana made it for me growing up, and my mother and aunts when they were young too.

Sautee shredded lunch meat (Budding brand works best, Beef or Turkey or Chicken, whichever) in butter, add your milk and flour and salt and pepper to taste. Serve over bread/toast.
