Lynn's notes for this recipe:
The great taste of a reuben with the bread (toast) floating on top of this tasty soup. Different and familiar at the same time!

This soup combines the classic flavors of a Reuben sandwich into a rich, hearty soup.


Melt butter in a large pot.
Add onion and saute. Sprinkle flour over onion and mix well.
Add stock and stir in sauerkraut.
Add remaining ingredients except bread and cheese. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove Bay leaf.
When soup is ready to serve, place bread under broiler for 2 minutes. Turn and sprinkle with cheese. Return to broiler until cheese melts. Place soup in bowls and place toast on top.
