Crock-Pot Cheese, Beer & Bratwurst Soup

Crock-Pot Cheese, Beer & Bratwurst Soup

My husband and I were discussing our Super Bowl of Soup Challenge and I was disappointed that I could not enter a recipe in the challenge, but we both agreed that would not be fair to enter in our own contest. But IF I was going to enter a soup recipe what would that soup be? What sort of soup just speaks “Super Bowl” to me?

I had no clue because, sorry, I don’t watch football. So we started knocking about some ideas and we both agreed…cheese soup – Super Bowl is in February and cheese soup is warm and hearty. But what with the cheese? And we thought beer (Super Bowl and beer just go hand in hand right) and then we though brats. And I was like um yeah BRILLIANT. And so we have this recipe that is really quite easy to make. Cheese, Beer & Bratwurst Soup…warm, manly (I like manly foods) and oh-so-good.

    This sounds really good; I am coming over from $5 dinners and I was wondering how you manage to get the ingredients for this under $5. We LOVE brats, but our current limit is $3 a day for 3 meals plus snacks for our family of 8. I would love to get brats in our menus!

      Hi Brandy, great question. The Brats were on sale at my local store for $3.00 and they were running a (rare) double coupon event so my $1.00/1 coupon was doubled making them $1.00 a package. You can also make this with just one package of Brats too instead of two. I did the Velveeta (had a coupon that doubled). I am a big coupon user!

    How many grams or ounces of bratwurst? Recipe doesn’t indicate the WEIGHT OR SIZE OF THE PACKAGE OF BRATWURST.

      Hi MJ,

      I am sorry that I left out the package size in this recipe. It has been a while since I made this so I am going off of best guesses. But I think the packages were 16 oz. each.

    I don’t like Velveeta, is there anything (real cheese products) that I could use instead? I don’t mind the recipe taking longer to make if I could skip the Velveeta!
