      Wow, was this good!!! I made it for an employee luncheon at work, an Octoberfest luncheon, it got rave reviews!! I doubled the recipe and added twice as much stock to turn it into a soup,(a very hearty soup!) The taste was fantastic and I had a dozen requests for the recipe. The double recipe, with added stock served 32 people. I will definately be makeing this at home, in smaller quantities of course, it will be wonderful to have in the freezer for cold winter nights. Thanks for sharing HeatherFeather!!
