Sausage 'n Stout Cheese Soup

Matt Sweeny 0

"This is a super filling and flavorful beer cheese soup that will keep you asking for seconds. Because of the dark stout beer, this soup takes on a great flavor that everyone will love - especially the kids. I like using elk sausage in place of the kielbasa."

  1. Bring potatoes, water, and beer to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in the sausage, green onions, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, mustard powder, and liquid smoke. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are completely tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. When the potatoes are tender, stir in the Cheddar cheese until completely melted, then add the milk. Heat through, stirring until cheese has melted but do not boil.

While this was a great addition to my recipe box and very easy to make, I have to say...4 potatoes? Not enough ;-) Lots of liquids and sausage, lots of great flavor. But not very filling. There ...

This was a great soup and pretty easy to make, although I halved the recipe because I only had 1 lb of kielbasa. My husband raved about it! I added about 1/2 tsp each of garlic powder and onion ...

Soup was not what I was expecting to make. It is far to brothy. If you want a creamy and thick cheese soup than you need to look elsewhere.

I followed this recipe to the letter, and wasn't super pleased with the results. The soup needed more, maybe celery, onions and/or peppers, and more potatoes. It was too thin and brothy, even a...

This is a fantastic variation of beer cheese soup. The dark beer is terrific.

This had a good flavor, but the broth looked weird because the beer, cheese, and milk did not mix well together.

This soup was incredibly delicious! I added a few shakes of Tabasco Sauce to give it a bit more kick and served it with Hawaiian bread on the side. I just wish that I had realized before I mad...

This is a great recipe! I did make a couple of adjustments: I browned the kielbasa a bit to start; instead of green onions, I used a regular yellow onion that I sauteed a bit; I used chicken st...
