This slow-cooker soup is my secret weapon on busy days. It’s delicious served with oyster crackers tossed in a bit of melted butter and herbs, and then lightly toasted in the oven. —Whitney Jensen, Spring Lake, MI

"I loved this soup. I have another split pea recipe I love but wanted to try something different and I loved it, as did my family. I added a small potato and added some chicken bullion powder. I would add the bullion again, but cut down on the salt. I give this 6 stars!!"

"I use Smoked ham to this recipe. First I cook the smoked ham bones, and use that as part of the water mixture, great flavor !!!! Sometimes I also add some chopped bacon & a little Italian Dressing, for a little added KICK !!!!"
