Emerill Legasse's Pea Soup. 1st place winner;
Split Pea Soup
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 cups chopped yellow onions
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon chopped garlic

Wow - Chicken broth, garlic and peas - Perfect.
I wonder is you could shorten the cooking time with washed frozen peas instead - good use of milk not cream to keep it quite healthy.
I might serve it with herb croutons or even tiny squares of fired crisp bacon. mmm

I see you like your bacon well done !!
I don't think using frozen or fresh peas will work. Please note that they are dried split peas. My wife has prepared this a number of times, and it is delicious, and depending on the amount of red chili flakes, and hot sauce you use, it'll warm the cockles of your heart, and other parts.
What's hot sauce? Don't think we have that as such.
Your fav hot sauce Rog; Red Hot, or tabasco, etc.
Mince and dumplings; Stovie; Meat loaf - mince, onions, peppers. Minced lamb pasty; Cornbeef stew; Stew and dumplings; Hotpot; Liver and bacon done in oven with onions, and bread portions, with lashings of Worcs. sauce; Mince and tetties; Leek pudding, served with mince; Lamb chops done in oven with onion rings and tomatoes on top; Mince Cobbler; Teviotdale Pie;
I could go on and on, but all we are having today is roast beef with Yorkshire puds, etc.
Has nobody got any BETTER suggestions, please ? I have enjoyed all the above in the last week and am getting fed up. Please , what about Heinz Tomato soup with cream crackers ?
