Here's a stick-to-your-ribs, hearty soup that's perfect for fall or winter. Serve with a loaf of crusty french bread and you have a satisfying meal!
In a large skillet over medium heat sauté sliced bratwurst until lightly browned and set aside.
In a separate saucepan or Dutch oven sauté onions and carrots until tender. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
Stir in stock, wine, beans, whole bay leaf, thyme, pepper and sausage. Bring to a boil, immediately reduce heat to low. Gently simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Remove bay leaf and ladle soup into bowls.
Every time I visit my parents in Wisconsin I bring home a suitcase full of Summer Sausage, and I make them bring as many sausages as they can fit every time they come visit me. Unfortunately I'm down to my last sausage right now, and I'm months away from another visit. My little girls are going to be so sad without their sausage sandwiches for lunch, and we just can't get anything good out here in California. Keep up the good work, and let me know if you can help us out! - Dave L.
We found Cher-Make hot dogs about five years ago and have not bought any other brand since, the flavor is great! - Shirley D.
We always take a couple sticks of summer sausage along when we go on vacation out of state! - Joann H.
We love Cher-Make ring bologna smothered in sauerkraut! - Sue H.
We live too far from home to get the good stuff locally. We would like to buy online in 50-100# lots. Maybe larger. Please save us from the inferior products that proliferate the grocery store counters. We need our Cher-Make sausage. - Phil B.
I won't buy anything else. Cher-Make is the best. - Venus M.
Congratulations on the wonderful "easy to open" packaging on your ring bologna. What a treat to easily open your product. Thank you. - Janet A.
I love your stadium hot dogs and brats on the grill. It's not a tailgate party without them! - Shannon K.
Cher-Make is the only summer sausage I will ever buy! - Becky B.
Cher-Make Big W Dogs are so good, you don't need anything on them at all! - Tim G.
My son Dave lives in Long Beach, CA and I always take Cher-Make beef summer sausage and hotdogs (per his request) in my suitcase when I visit. It's the only type he (and 4 yr old granddaughter) likes. Do you ship directly from your factory? She turns 4 next week, she wants a desk and summer sausage for her birthday from Grandma. - Susan L.
Just to let you know we enjoy your natural casing hot dogs and polish sausage, might be the best we've ever had - KEEP IT COMING! - Robert C.
I typically don't like brats, but your pepper jack chicken brats are awesome! - Maggie T.
Cher-Make is excellent! Clean place, friendly people and most of all, awesome food! - Tina D.
We recently found your natural casing wieners here in Michigan. Great snap and wonderful flavor! - Pat B.
Had your low fat, low calorie Chicken Brats last nite for the first time. They were excellent! - Ken H.
This was the first time I purchased your product. I bought 2 packages of your Homegame fully cooked bratwurst. They were great! We roasted them over our campfire and they tasted wonderful! I plan to try more of your products in the future. I am always glad to support great WI products. Keep up the good work! - Jane M.
