Made this last night in my extra large crock pot. If you follow the recipe exactly it makes a huge amount of soup so be sure to use a big crock pot. Husband loved it! He had three big helpings. Son (9 years old) just thought it was ok but did eat it. I diced the carrots up really small and he didn't even notice them, he hates carrots. When I make this again I will only use 8 cups of water instead of the 10 the recipe calls for. We thought the soup was a little thin and we prefer a thicker version of Split Pea Soup. Otherwise it was very yummy and I will definitely make it again! Diced ham would be good in this soup too!

My husband was the one wanting a pea soup. He didn't care for this recipe until I put the soup in my blender and pureed it. It has a very good taste, with the sausage.

I made this with 16 oz cubed ham instead of sausage. EXCELLENT! I did make a few other changes after reading reviews though. I used 8 cups of chicken broth instead of the 10 cups of water. I also used fresh minced garlic instead of the garlic powder. I only added about half of the peas in the beginning...I was getting nervous around 3 hours because it didn't seem to be cooking at all! But then about a half hour later it was really going and I added the rest of the peas, and it went for a total of about 5 hours on high. So it came out with a nice thick pea mush with some whole pieces too. I was a little nervous about the lack of a lot of "seasonings and spices" here...but trust the recipe and use a good quality pea and meat and the flavors will really come out where they are supposed to! Hubby says best pea soup yet!

This was really good. The only changes I made were: 2cans of chicken broth, instead of the bouillon cubes, therefore only 7 cups of water. I also added 1/2 lb or cubed ham and used Cajun sausage to add flavor. SDamare, Slidell,LA

Absolutely the best peas soup I have ever had!!! I used 3/4 lb of italian sausage, and added a few peppers and red skin potatoes with skins. I like the extra fiber. :-) Thank you Dorothy for sharing this with us.

My husband and I like to make this recipe in the dead of winter! We like to beef it up a little with some Tabisco and a few other spices. We use chicken broth instead of chicken boullion cubes. That way there is not as much salt. Thank you for this recipe!

Yummy! I used turkey smoked sausage to cut the fat and this was really good. It freezes well too - I have it frozen in individual servings and have it for lunch often. Pretty easy to make too.

Amazing, even my 9 & 5 year old kids loved this. Husband went back for seconds too!! I used 1lb of sweet Italian sausage squeezed from the casing and fried instead of the smoked sausage. I also used 8 cups of water instead of 10 because I only have a 4qut crock pot. I ended up cooking it on High for about 5 hours and then low another 2 because I forgot about it :) it turned out great anyways and was nice and thick and creamy. Went great with a box of Jiffy cornbread, an effortless meal to walk in the door to! A definite keeper, THANKS!!
