Cheddar Ale Soup with Pumpernickel Toast
It may look like French Onion, but don't be fooled -- this is no ordinary soup. Beer, hearty veggies, and bacon make up the base, and that's melted cheddar sizzling on top, not Swiss. Cold winter days? No match for this warming recipe.
If this combination seems a bit off the wall, consider what's often eaten with beer: cheese, bread, pork products, and mustard. All make an appearance in what is one of the strangest, yet strangely comforting bowls of soup I've made so far this winter.
