Beer Cheese Soup with Brats and Cheddar
Some foods are just what we have to call man food! I mean think about it some things like steak, chili, and pizza, do I need to go on tell a guy any of these are for dinner and you have made a friend. Tell him you are giving him beer for dinner and the only thing that could be better is his bass boat just won him a trip to the Dayton 500. Think of it, guys love beer we girls don’t totally get it but heck they don’t get sale at the Mall either. When it comes to food guys have a very simple primal language and if you grunt it (speak it) you will have a loyal puppy your whole life.
Now before you send me hate mail I am not calling guys dogs. But men are simple and if you clue into this you will have a best friend for life and someone that will go to the highest mountain for you. Not sure of this (I am going on 27 years) I have it more right in today’s day and age then wrong. It is ok that we are different as long as we respect that and each other too, it is a perfect pairing kind of like this recipe.
If you’re the least bit unsure of any of this try the recipe on a Friday night serve it in front of the TV and without an argument flip on ESPN and see how much your man smiles. Now this is not a scientific poll but what does science have to do with men anyways. And if you’re lucky his game will not go into overtime and see how different he is in the morning. I think I am on to something here; I would be interested in your results. Leave me a comment if it worked for you.
- 12 ounces bratwurst, cooked, chopped

- Slowly add the cheese until it is melted do not let it come to a boil continue stirring during this so the cheese doesn't stick or burn.

- Shut the heat off and serve hot along with your favorite bread, goes well with pumpernickel, marbled rye or regular rye.

Although this soup sounds fancy and complex it is really a rather simple and quick recipe to make. Soup recipes often seem complex and intimidating when we first see them but when you break it down into steps they are often some of the easiest recipes to make and not necessarily long either. This soup recipe is ready in about twenty-five minutes and all the preparation is pretty straightforward too. It is a nice recipe and sure to be a favorite with older guys (over teens) as tell a guy it has beer in it and their eyes light up, ah she loves me she is giving me beer for dinner. Think I am joking try it and see.
