Place the bacon bones, split peas and stock in a 6L slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or until soup is very thick.
Twenty minutes before serving, preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper or foil.
Place the bacon rashers in a single layer on the prepared tray. Brush with 2 teaspoons maple syrup. Bake for 4 minutes. Turn bacon over and brush with the remaining maple syrup. Cook for a further 4 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate and set aside to cool (they will become crisp on cooling). Tear into large pieces.
Place bread slices on the tray. Cook for 2 minutes or until toasted. Turn over and top with cheese. Bake for 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Remove the bacon bones from the soup and discard. Add the frozen peas and set aside for 5 minutes. Use a stick blender to blend until smooth.
Serve soup topped with cheesy bread, maple bacon, sour cream or cru00e8me frau00eeche and green shallot.
