Crock Pot Split Pea Soup

Thank you Debbie for hosting Crock Pot Wednesdays. Who knows when I would've ever used my crock pot again! So go to Debbie's blog and see all the other recipes that the participants are posting. http://diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com/

This week I made another recipe from Stephanie O'Dea's slowcooker book! I always liked split pea soup but no one else in my family did so I'm making it now for myself! More for the freezer for those winter days.

Here is the recipe. I made it almost exactly except I didn't have crumpled bacon on the top when I served it to myself.

I diced up carrots, half a big onion and half of this size of potato in that gadget I showed you in the last post! (with, of course, a bag of slit peas!)

I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth because that's what I had, about a half pound of bacon then I diced up half a slice of this ham steak. (Plus 1 cup water and salt and pepper)

Dump it all in there and it looks like this. (The peas are all on the bottom.)

It's cooking. I did stir it a couple times during the 9 hours!

When done, take a fork and remove all the bacon. (My dog got some of that on his dinner : ))

Here's another handy gadget. It's my immersion blender tool. It's definitely needed to get split pea soup consistency!

OK, it's all ready. It actually looks a little greener than the picture. Of course the carrots color it too.

My dinner. Yummmmmmm.
Have a happy Wednesday everyone.


  1. Yum, that looks so good. I love split pea soup to and my husband won't even try it because it's green. Go figure! I usually buy it in cans but I could make some in the crock pot and save it for me in the freezer for days when he wants pizza or something I don't want. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I'm enjoying reading Stephanie's book myself. I hope the recent winners of my giveaway will be enjoying theirs this week as well. I really appreciate your participation in Crock Pot Wednesday. I love split pea soup, but Hubby isn't a fan. What time did you say you were serving yours? Have a great day!
