Beer forms the base of this soup made with sour cream and egg yolks that is thickened with cornstarch, sweetened with a bit of sugar, and served over cheese and bread.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 6 cups beer
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 slices French bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring beer, covered, to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat together egg yolks, sour cream, cornstarch, sugar and salt until well blended. Transfer mixture to a large saucepan over low heat. Pour in hot beer, a little at a time, stirring until well combined. Do not boil.
To serve, divide bread cubes into four warmed soup bowls. Sprinkle cheese over bread. Pour hot soup over all and serve piping hot.
