Is it bad that I’m already thinking about Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is “my” family holiday — which means it’s my turn to have the whole fam over. So, I’m always on the lookout of Thanksgiving dinner contenders. I came across this recipe for Au Gratin Sweet Peas in the pile. It was waaaay down on the bottom. Probably because I printed it out in 2000! This was back when Emeril Lagasse was the big star Food Network. Pre Rachel. Pre Paula. Pre (dare I say it…) Ina.
My mom makes the best creamy peas. You know, the ones with the little pearl onions in a cream sauce. Soooo good! I was curious to see if Emeril’s recipe was as good.
