So - I ate at a wonderful restaurant in Appleton WI (Old Bavarian) and had this great soup - bratwurst/sauerkraut/cheese - sounded nasty and was wonderful. I asked for the recipe and the little german waitress said (with a great deadpan face) "If I gave it to you, I would have to kill you"... so anyone have this in their repertoire? Seems like it would be pretty basic but the sauerkraut was wonderful and tiny bits of bratwurst - cheese was maybe a swiss-type cheese but was mild and lovely -- anyone?

Here is a soup that we love. I imagine that you can use bratwurst in place of the kiebasa with the same delicious results.

Saukerkraut soup

one pound package of sauerkraut, drained

large chopped onion

4 cups water

1/4 cup unsifted flour

3 cups milk (or skim evaporated milk for richer taste)

12 oz pkg swiss cheese, shredded

1 pound kiebasa, sliced

Cook onion in 3 Tablespoons olive oil until soft. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in water and and sauerkraut. Stir in 1 pound sliced kiebasa, sliced

Simmer for at least one hour
Stir in swiss cheese and milk bring back to simmer and let simmer 1o min.

It is now ready to serve.

You are great! This looks wonderful! It also seems to be just what I ate so I look forward to trying it (when our heat wave ends) - Thanks.
