Quick Split Pea Soup

I often make this recipe when pressed for time, or when I am lazy. Progresso brand pea soup is one of the better brands, in my opinion, however the soup straight out of the can seems rather bland and lacks the flavors that I prefer. Consequently, I "doctor" the canned soup to suit my own tastes. Thus, I add bacon and spices to give this soup a little extra flavor.
  • 2 cans Progresso Green Pea Soup
  • ½ Lb. bacon, fried crisp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp. tarragon
  • 1/4 tsp. savory
  • ½ tsp. parsley flakes, or 1 tsp. fresh chopped parsley

Dice the bacon and fry in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Simultaneously, heat the 2 cans of soup over low heat in a suitable pot. Once the bacon is fried, drain and add to the soup. Also add the spices. Simmer the soup over low heat for about 5 more minutes, stirring frequently, to allow the flavors to blend. Serve hot with a sandwich for a quick and filling meal.

Enjoy!
