Simply the BEST split pea soup EVER! Followed directions up to simmer on stove top - I baked mine in a dutch oven at 250 F for 4 hours - FABULOUS! Even beter reheated - needs additional water when reheating because oh so very thick. So nice it doesn't separate as some split pea soups do. Maybe the potatoes? Anyway, thanks for a hearty nutritious and EASY soup to take us into the holiday season. Will be serving with sweet potato rolls tomorrow and Wednesday (bet it will be gone before Thanksgiving)!

Outstanding recipe. I use a Hormel smoked pork chop for the meat. I make this all the time! Many thanks for posting it.

When my boyfriend had his wisdom teeth out he couldn't eat anything but soup for the first 3 days. He requested split pea since its so hearty. This recipe was perfect. I didn't have a ham bone on hand so I just browned 2 strips of bacon that I chopped up very fine and cooked with the onion. I also used homemade stock to give it an extra richness. Yummy! Please thank Dean for me.
