"Italian sausage or regular pork sausage also work well with this soup. Serve hot with chunks of good crusty bread, if desired." — MARBALET

bratwurst, casings removed
potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium head
Swiss cheese, diced
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)!
No one in my family liked this...and we like cabbbage!
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.
