I made it!

This is better than any pea and ham soup you could ever make. If you by a bag of bacon bits(good economical buying), good and chunky, you may need to make the pieces a little smaller but don't make the pieces too small.
1 kg smoked bacon bits -any off cuts are good and the smokier the better for fuller flavour
1 clove of garlic crushed
1 large onion
2 large potatoes peeled and cubed
2 cans cream style corn
1 litre stock
1 packet soup mix/split peas (whichever is your preference)
Salt and pepper to taste

40 min › Ready in:
Chop bacon pieces into reasonable size cubes...not too small as the size is what makes this so good.
Chop onions...as chunky or as small as you like; peel and cube the potatoes into bite size cubes.
Saute the bacon and onion and garlic in a pan.
Add to slow cooker with stock (if you like a thinner soup add more stock or water) add the soup mix/split peas.
Leave to cook 4 hours minimum on high.
Add the cream corn one hour before serving. Stir in well.
Serve with crusty bread for a hearty filling meal
Add the diced potato at the same time as the stock

I don't actually live 'down under' and am wondering what a "packet of soup mix" is? Can you tell me?

Really delicious! I used normal bacon and added smoked hocks for flavour. Perfect for winter, my whole family devoured it! Thank you.
