If you are a lover of sauerkraut then you will *love* this soup! --- add the croutons they go very well with the soup.

This is wonderful even with some of the calorie saving changes I made. I used skim milk instead of cream and halved the amount of cheese. I know this would have been even better prepared as written, but it still tasted rich and delicious.
