    Oh my, this is so good if I don't watch myself I could eat the whole batch myself (good thing I only made 1/2 a recipe).

    So good! I used less cheese, fat-free half and half, a little more corn starch and added Penzey's Mural of Flavor spice mix. I wish I would have remembered the pumpernickel croutons; that would have made it perfect! I am hoping it will freeze well.

    we liked it, but did not love it. DH thought the tarragon was weird, added a licorice taste that "did not fit". next time i make, i will sprinkle the swiss cheese to the top of the soup, because it did not melt well and made the soup stringy. it will be made again, because we both love sauerkraut and Reuben sandwiches.

    One of the best soups I've ever made, thanks Kittencal! Definitely for sauerkraut lovers. I used corned beef from the deli, but next time I think I'll make it with leftover corned beef from an Irish dinner. I didn't add the chili flakes, but might add a few next time. Used a 15 ounce can of sauerkraut, next time I'll try to find the 10. Sliced the carrots finely instead of shredding, might try shredding next time if I have the energy and will add 1 or 2 more (we love carrots). A delicious and surprisingly healthy soup!<br/><br/>ETA: I made this a second time and used a bag of shredded swiss, but it didn't melt very well and got clumpy. I think I'll have to shred the cheese myself from now on. Stilll wonderfully delcious!
