One of my favorite comfort foods. Inexpensive, easy, and delicious! Put this in the crockpot in the morning and come home to a wonderful dinner. I got this recipe from a blogging buddy and have made it often.

Top Review by Trial and Errol

I made this once before, but neglected to read how much split peas to add. I know it was too much, at least double; however the next common sized bag of peas appears to be 3 lbs? Regardless; it turned out remarkably well if not a little thick, and only took some boiling water to get the desired consistency. I definitely intend to prepare it properly as directed sometime soon; but if my folly resulted so well, I can imagine it can only get better!
