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):


  • 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.
