Directions

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, saute the sausage for 10 minutes, or until browned and crumbled. Drain well and discard the fat.
  2. In a large pot over high heat, combine the browned sausage, potatoes, onion and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the cabbage, return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for another 20 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups of the milk and heat slowly to just under a boil. (Note: Don't try to do this too fast, or the milk will burn on the bottom of the pot.)
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix the flour with the remaining milk, and add to the pot slowly, stirring constantly, so that the flour does not clump. (Note: Make sure you get out all the lumps because they will not cook out on their own.)
  4. When the mixture in the pot thickens, add the cheese and stir off and on until the cheese has melted.

This was delicious! Starts off looking a little weird, but I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. My finicky 4-year-old, and my husband who despises cabbage, both loved it (me too)!

I added a good dark German beer when I added the cabbage, it gave it a wonderful extra flavor.

This was great. Filling, cheap to make, easy! I do think, the cabbage is a little overcooked. I would reduce the last 20 minute simmer to about 10. Also, next time, I will find a less spicy sausage. We used one, and it had too much kick!

I was looking for a way to use some leftover Bratwurst Patties and did a search for "bratwurst" on this site. What a hit! Wonderful recipe. My whole family ate it up! I substituted 2 cups of shredded mixed blend cheese (Mont. Jack/Cheddar) instead of the Swiss. And I added 1 teaspoon of curry powder to the mix. A real keeper!

When I was cooking this it looked odd and I was worried! I added some spices to the recipe. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I loved this soup! My girlfriend doesnt eat any soup besides chicken noodle and she loved this soup to. I did changed it up a bit. Along with the bratwurst i also added a half pound of bacon. I cut it up into 1 inch long strips and cooked it with the bratwurst. I was out of swiss cheese and found that a slice of american cheese in each bowl was a great substitute. I added a minced clove of fresh garlic and a few shakes of red pepper flakes when browning the meat. I also substituted corn beef broth (from the night before) for the water. I WILL make again.

Substituted broccoli for cabbage, and 1/2 cheddar 1/2 mozzarella for swiss cheese.
