This comforting soup is excellent for a cold winter's night. I usually make it with pasta shells. It's a very filling soup and all you need with it is a fresh, crusty bread. I found the recipe in a South African magazine.
This recipe is from the days that Paula Deen started "The Bag Lady", where her sons would go out and sell their mother's meals. The recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen, 2003 Television Food Network. She was very overwhelmed when she cooked this soup and it looked very good! Hope to be trying it very soon. 05/08/07 Update . .DELICIOUS, did
change a few things around - first added carrots and celery to the stock, as well as dill (it really makes the soup even better.)
One of the best soups you will ever have! To save time cook the sausage, onion and garlic hours ahead or even a day ahead and refrigerate. If serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double the complete recipe.
This is from the Tillamook Cheese Factory - some of the best cheese in the world!!!!! Of course I'm biased cause they're in my home state :-) This is my fave beer cheese soup -- you can use other cheese, just make sure it's extra sharp!
