Marsha's Story

My granddaughter Vivian is addicted to this soup. The original soup calls for "Bratwurst" or "Knackwurst" but I usually use Polish Kielbasa instead.


1 lb
fully cooked bratwurst, knackwurst or kielbasa, sliced into into 1/2 inch slices
3-4 large
potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium
onion, chopped
1 small
head cabbage, shredded
3-4 medium
carrots, sliced
celery stalks, sliced
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
3 c
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 c
swiss cheee, shredded
fresh snipped parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

In a Dutch oven, combine sausage, potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, salt and pepper. Add 2-3 cups water (I sometimes use chicken broth). Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.
Stir in cabbage and cook for 10 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Stir in 2 1/2 cups milk.
Stir flour and remaining milk together and then add to soup. Cook on low until thick and bubbly. Stir in cheese until melted. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Yes, for sure. I would let it go about 6 hours and then add the cheese and then let it go for another 2 or so. Let me know how it turns out. I know what you mean about heating the kitchen up. Crockpots are wonderful for keeping the kitchen cool.

Gottcha there. Not quite soup time is it. It was 90 here in Florala today. Crockpot food, so we don't heat up the kitchen.
