      Thank you for saving this recipe. Sunny Select no longer prints this recipe on the bag. When I made the soup I substituted 1 lb. cooked bacon & one teaspoon of bacon grease. Not the healthiest recipe, but it was a big hit with everyone that has had it. I serve the soup with diced ham, shredded cheese, green onions and bacon bits ( just like a Pea Anderson's did in the past)

      I have used this recipe for years. Perfect every time. A couple tricks I have used over the years. I prefer a thicker soup, so I sometimes add dehydrated potato flakes if the soup needs thickening. After I remove the ham bone, ham pieces, and bay leaf, I use my blender stick and make it a bit smoother. Be sure to add the ham chunks back after blending. I love the addition of thyme. I also add a chicken bouillon seasoning at times to boost the flavor. Thanks for posting!

      Delicious! I love the simplicity of this recipe as well! I made as directed with the exception of the celery, which I totally forgot to put in! Geez! Next time I will! I simmered on low for a few hours and it cooked up beautifully! Thanks for sharing! :)
