  1. I think someone forgot to mention when to add the Yellow Split Peas!! I happen to know… at least I think so…. but someone seeing this recipe and not usee to Yellow Split Peas will not know!! Just thought a little edit would enhance this lovely recipe! 🙂

    • Thank you for spotting that Ernest. I had forgotten to add the peas to the list of vegetables to add to the casserole dish, i tend to mix it all with the vegetables when i boil them.
