Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns

Barb1970

"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."

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

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...

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...

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 ...
