  • 3 tbsp salted butter plus more for serving
  • 1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp white pepper
  • 2 cups half ‘n’ half
  • 28 oz bag frozen peas
  • fresh dill


  • In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, heat butter until it just begins to brown.
  • Add flour, salt, and pepper to the pan then brown for 1 additional minute.
    TIP: It’s important to brown the flour before adding the cream to the pan. The browned butter and flour adds flavor and provides a smooth texture to the creamed peas.
  • Whisk half ‘n’ half into the flour mixture until smooth.
  • Add frozen peas and a teaspoon of chopped dill and heat over medium until mixture comes to a simmer and begins to thicken. Stir regularly to ensure the half ‘n’ half does not stick and burn to the bottom of the pan.
  • Season with additional salt and pepper and garnish with fresh dill and butter, if desired.
