Oma's Easy Cheese Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Here's my easy Cheese Soup, aka Käsesuppe, that's great on a cold winter's night. This German Käsesuppe is delicious with a hearty loaf of German bread. 

Taking only about 30 minutes to make, this quick easy soup is a favorite among kids. Buy your cheese already grated - easier still.

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

Use a medium-aged Gouda or try another one of your favorite cheeses for this.

Yummy German Cheese Soup with browned onions! Made just like Oma.

Try a mixture of cheeses to alter the flavor. Using the nutmeg is VERY German. However, you can omit it and/or try other herbs and spices. Be creative!

Grab your copy of Oma's favorite soups collection in Quick Fix German Soups e-Cookbook. You'll LOVE it!

This cheese soup is really among the best recipes that will teach you an easy way how to make soup. Really. If you're looking for something easy and delicious, give this one a try!

The browned onion slices adds such flavor, but can be omitted if desired.

Don't have any chicken broth? I always keep bouillon cubes on hand. My pantry is stocked with vegetable, chicken, beef, and mushroom bouillon cubes. That way I'm always ready for whatever the recipe asks for.

Have extra cheese left over? Grate it and freeze it. That way you're ready next time the urge to make this soup hits.
