Well, this is my first time making Split Pea Soup. Not as good as my grandmothers but it's my best! LOL I added 1-1/2 tsp garlic, omitted celery (for lack of having some), 1 cup cooked ham and about two slices cooked chopped bacon. I removed the Bay Leaf about 30 minutes in because Im not a big fan of the flavour. THANKS for the great recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse split peas in cold water.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pan; bring to boil.
  3. Reduce heat and cover.
  4. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Remove bay leaf at end of 1-1/2 hours.
  6. If soup is too thick, add enough water or chicken broth until soup reaches desired consistency. Soup thickens upon standing.
