Made this exactly as listed, turned out great! Was a hit with the family. We’ll try it with different flavors of brats next.

Absolutely delicious! Didn't have Navy beans so used cannellini beans and a little more jalapenos as we love things spicy. Will definitely be making this often.

Made this Bratwurst Soup close to the listed recipe and it was good. I was surprised how creamy the soup was. Only modifications I made were I only had about 5 pickled jalapenos which I diced, didn't have navy beans, so I diced a small potato and par boiled it and a pinch of caraway seed which was added just prior to when the broth was added. I used deli sliced American Cheese.

It was GREAT !, Yes, I did alter it a bit. I reduced the pepper and added Tabisco - Chilpote flavor - 1/4 teaspoon.
