Slow Cooker Cheddar Bratwurst Soup is a great soup to serve on a cold day, and also for game days!

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and sweat the onions and garlic with 1 T. olive oil.
  2. Place potatoes, carrots and green onions in the bottom of a 6-Quart Slow Cooker and top with cooked onions/garlic.
  3. Slice brats and brown & sear on both sides in the heated skillet.
  4. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any grease.
  5. Place brats in slow cooker and top with seasonings then cheese.
  6. Pour in chicken stock and ale.
  7. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or 6 hours on LOW.
  8. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 c. water in a measuring cup. Stir into soup.
  9. Stir half & half into soup.
  10. Cover and cook for 15 more minutes on HIGH.

Serving Suggestions: Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, crusty bread or pretzels. I like the soft pretzels!
