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.
