Oktoberfest Beer Cheese Dip

I love all things Oktoberfest! My birthday is in the beginning of October and so is Melanie’s. We usually try to kick off the October celebrations together by going to a local Oktoberfest…beer, sausage, and great company!  I was inspired by Melanie’s German Sausage and Barley Soup (Graupensuppe) and the Oktoberfest’s we ad been visiting, that I came up with this recipe. It has sausage, beer, and cheese-what’s not to like? And this would make a great party snack! It’s a cheat meal, but oh-so-worth-it!  Enjoy!

German Sausage and Barley Soup (Graupensuppe)

Fall is finally here woohooo! I am beyond excited for cozy soups, stews and casseroles. I’ve been researching for a delicious sausage recipe in honor of Oktoberfest, and came across this excellent soup on www.oliviascuisine.com. It’s a bit cooler in Southern Cali this week so I jumped on the opportunity! I just adjusted a bit by adding in kale for some extra vitamins and crumbled in the crispy bacon at the end. My family absolutely loved it…so tasty and hearty, yet still light. Enjoy this on a nice cozy night this Fall!
