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. Use a medium-aged Gouda or try another one of your favorite cheeses for this.
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!
Like the soup shown here? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too!
There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
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.

These German gingerbread cookies, or Lebkuchen, are such a traditional cookie to have for Christmas. They're very easy to make, there's no reason to buy them.
