    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    Even the people in my family who claim to "hate" sauerkraut love this soup. It is my adaptation from a recipe I had that I KNEW the family would NOT like. This is so good on a cold winter day served with warm crusty bread and a nice German Beer. This can be low(er) carb too by using a LC thickener.

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a large dutch oven.
    2. 2
      Chop the sausage coarsely by hand or in a food processor (leave the casing on).
    3. 3
      Transfer the sausage to pan with melted butter, and season with onion powder (or add onion).
    4. 4
      Saute over medium heat until the sausage is lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      On a small plate combine the flour, thyme, parsley and pepper. Add to the sausage and brown all together until the mixture bubbles up, about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add the chicken broth, milk and the half-and-half, and cook stirring until the mixture again bubbles up, about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add the sauerkraut and it juice and bring to a boil; the mixture will continue to thicken.
    8. 8
      Reduce heat and add Velveeta, stirring until melted.

      WOW! So good, so easy. 2 changes to deal with an undersupplied kitchen - beef instead of chicken broth, and shredded cheddar in place of velveeta. WOW!~ Will add this to the winter rotation - we both loved it - and are sending the left overs to my MIL who is German and will also love it!

      Fabulous! This goes on the "comfort food" list. I used the option of the chopped onion instead of the powder. I did cut some fat; I used reduced-fat smoked sausage, and my milk and half and half were fat free and the soup was still thick and creamy. I used 4 oz of cheddar in place of Velveeta. I love sauerkrautr, so I used a whole 15-oz can. This has such great flavor. It's now one of my favorite soups! I'm tempted to add some potatoes... maybe carrots, too, for a hearty meal-in-one soup! Thanx for this recipe!!!
