Needed a quick recipe for Ham Hocks and Lentil Soup, Emeril Lagasse's recipe came through for me! I used 2 teaspoons of dried thyme instead of the fresh ones. Just to kick-it-up-a-notch, I added 2 small cut up potatoes.

I saw this recipe today on the TV and I liked it. Since I had all the ingredients, I decided to make this soup on a wimp. Three lazy hours later, I just finished making it and after tasting a bowl, I really enjoyed it very much. I only added garlic salt to "kick it up a notch." I will be serving it with basmati rice.

Too many ingedients are included in this recipe. The author propares this recipe for a whole army division. For the rest of us our family is a single digit. Good as this recipe may be, it is not practicle for a small party."
