Perfect for New Year's Day, a family favorite passed down through generations. It takes work but is more than worth it! You can use rye or pumpernickel bread.

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and celery in butter until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir flour into onion mixture. Gradually stir water and bouillon into onion mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Stir corned beef, half-and-half, 1 cup Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut into pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until soup thickens, about 30 minutes.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Ladle soup into 8 oven-proof bowls. Top each soup bowl with bread cubes and 1/4 cup cheese.

  • Broil soup in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

I'm rating 5 stars even though I put in less sauerkraut and swiss cheese to my liking. I also added a bit of red bell pepper. We loved it! If you do put in less ingredients you will probably want to adjust liquids as you desire.
