Split Pea with Ham Soup

Split Pea with Ham soup

1 meaty ham bone
1 Knorr chicken boullion cube
1 bay leaf
1 lb. split peas (I like half green, half yellow)
assorted chopped veggies like carrots, onions, celery, potatoes
salt and pepper
Frank's Red Hot sauce

Boil ham bone for two hours in enough water to cover, plus one Knorr chicken boullion cube and one bay leaf. Add split peas and cook an additional half hour. Remove ham bone, cool, and take the ham off the bone and cube it. Add the cubed ham, along with the remaining vegetables and cook until the vegetables are soft and the peas have virtually disintegrated. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and add hot sauce, if desired.

Serve with crusty bread.
