Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns

Rated as 4.41 out of 5 Stars
4

"I use bacon instead of ham and frozen hash brown potatoes in this pea soup. It's a good winter comfort food and smells wonderful while cooking. It freezes well, so when my husband and I are busy all day, its a quick dinner for us. I add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit. You can also cook whole bacon strips in the microwave until lightly browned. Transfer to paper towels and let cool; crush or tear into small pieces."

Great recipe for the crock pot. I used turkey ham instead of the bacon and opted to leave out the red pepper flakes because I don't like spice. I made this a "freezer meal" by dumping everythi...

I followed the directions to a T. 12 hours after first turning it on - I still had crunchy peas. I added more liquid (though that didn't seem to really be an issue in the first place, but I th...

Excellent combination of ingredients. We used ham instead of bacon, but plan to try with bacon!

This is the best soup recipe! My husband and I love it! I did make some slight variations. I sauteed the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots before putting in the crockpot. I also added extra...

Made it as is and loved it. Second time, I borrowed some inspiration from our favorite Indian restaurant. I reduced potatoes by half and substituted chopped cauliflower of about same size as h...

Pretty good. I didn't have any bacon, so left it out, and meant to put in the potatoes but got sidetracked. Even so, it was a very hearty soup; probably doesn't need the potatoes and ham, but ...

I literally just finished my first bowl of this soup, and wow! I followed the recommendations of some reviewers, so this review may be slight misleading (sorry). Some changes: instead of p...

This is almost identical to my recipe, but I have access to smoked ham hocks which are terrific, especially the second day. I'll put a 1 Kgm ham hock in and by the second day, all of the meat f...

In South Africa a curried stew or thick soup served in a hollowed-out bun or half a loaf of bread is known as a "bunny chow". It is a "meal in one". I add half a cup of fresh frozen peas to the ...
