If you love Reubens, you are sure to love this rich and creamy rendition of this popular sandwich in a soup!
There is nothing more satisfying than a hearty bowl of soup when there is a chill in the air. I do believe that winter is finally upon us. We had an unseasonably warm fall, but this last week, we have had some crazy weather. Rain, and 50 mph winds, hail, tornados and snow — it’s been crazy! The cold has settled in and the coats have come out of the closets, and my mind has turned to planning meals that are capable of warming from the inside out. Last week we enjoyed this fantastic new recipe for a soup modeled around one of our most favorite sandwiches, the Reuben. Corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese – engulfed in a creamy base and topped with homemade Rye croutons.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Frank’s Kraut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Of course, whenever I cook anything with sauerkraut, I ALWAYS choose, Frank’s Kraut.
Frank’s Kraut is one of the most versatile vegetables on the grocery shelf. Kraut provided nutrition and zest to many meals. It’s made with 3 ingredients; Cabbage, Salt and Water. It’s low in calories and gluten free, and comes in many flavors.
