Split Pea Soup

Because we can't always afford ham I simply cut up hot dogs and put them in for the last half hour. I add a teaspoon or two of liquid smoke to substitute for the missing smokey ham taste. (02/17/2010)

Split Pea Soup

Love split pea soup, but I always make mine cream of split pea soup. Before serving, drizzle in one or two tbsp of half and half, into each bowl and swirl w/ a knife to make it pretty. Serve. Let everyone stir their own soup to combine.
