"This soup is the perfect comfort food!!! Warms to the toes! It is a thick soup with frankfurter chunks for that extra flavor. You can substitute chopped ham for the frankfurters." — DOWNSEY

This is a good soup. I am vegetarian, so I omitted the hot dogs and used veggie broth. I also added a potato to thicken a bit. After simmering for an hour, I had to add probably close to 2 additional cups of water to make it a soup. I pureed 2 ladles full of the soup in the blender and mixed it back into the soup for some creaminess in the texture. The soup is thick and hearty and nutritious, great for a cold day. Some fresh, warm bread and a green salad makes it an easy meal. Next time I may experiment with some spices, because although it was good, I felt maybe it needed a little kick or a subtle spice in the background. But all in all a god recipe. It makes a lot of soup and it's very economical, so it was great to make on a Sunday for lunch at work during the week.
Not bad. Definitely needs something more for my taste buds in the way of flavor. Didn't really like the frankfurters, I used turkey. I am thinking next time I will get a ham hock or two and make a nice broth from those, then add in the other ingredients. I used two carrots and I think next time I will use a little less peas (2 cups), add 2 cups of V8 and add some more spices (like parsley and perhaps some Jane's Crazy Mixed Up Salt). Overall my kids and Hubby really liked it and ate it up. Thank you for the recipe :).
This was great! I added a cup of frozen corn once it was simmering. I also added some parsley flakes for color and flavor. I didn't have celery, so I used an extra carrot. Everyone really liked it. I would definitely make it again!
I, personally, never liked adding hot dogs to my split pea soup (yellow or green), but my cousin has 2 young granddaughters (grade school age) and a husband who can't get enough of her pea soup whenever she adds them. She boils the franks separately, grinds them up a bit in her mini-chopper, distributes them into separate soup bowls and pours the soup over them. The kids feel like they're "diving" for their hot dogs and their bowls are empty in minutes.
My husband loved this soup...something about the hot dogs that magically makes split pea soup more appealing! This is the first time that all of my split pea soup leftovers got eaten. Guess that means I have to make it again.
Very quick and easy. We used vegatarin bratwurst cut up in it.
Really good soup - if you omit the hot dogs... Maybe will add some spicy sausage next time.
i live in the colder climeates of the north an must say - This is a heart warmer ans so easy to prepare!
