When I was a kid we visited Split Pea Anderson’s on a trip through central California. That is where I tried it for the first time & fell in love. It was also the only thing I could recognize on the menu during a trip to Japan when I was just out of high school. It’s definitely been my “go-to” for years & so it’s no surprise that it’s something we make again & again.

It IS one of my all-time favorites. We have a handful of recipes that we have tweaked & changed over the years, but the one that gets made most often is this slow cooker version. I love that it’s loaded with ham! This particular recipe gets made every year the day after Easter for obvious reasons. It’s a great way to use up leftovers. The whole family just loves it & that makes me happy because it’s relatively healthy & is just so simple to create.
