Oma's Easy Cheese Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

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

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!

Grab your copy of my own German Soup e-Cookbook in English. You'll LOVE it! 

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.
