This very flavorful soup is so good on a cold night served with hot French bread or homemade bread. I found it in a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, published in 1981.

Delicious winter tummy warmer! I followed the recipe to a T, but used 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar. Served with warm crispy rolls fresh out the oven. Thanks Karen. =)
This is a very satisfying recipe. Try using different cheeses to vary the taste.
Sooooo yummy! I used chicken stock in place of the water and didn't have too much time for the prep part, so I bought a bag of the shredded cabbage instead of the head of cabbage. I used the crock pot instead. After putting the stock, sausage, potatoes, onions, salt and pepper into the crock pot, I let it cook on high for about 2 hours. Then I added the cabbage and let it cook down on low. I added the milk and left it for a couple of hours and then thickened it up and added the cheese. I didn't think I would care for the cabbage too much but it really added to the dish. I took this to a friend's house as an addition to our German dinner we planned. It was a hit and everyone wanted the recipe!
