German Onion Soup

For the croutons:
5-6 slices German seeded rye bread, cut into 1" cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder

For the soup:
1 pound bratwurst sausage, cut into 1" pieces
5 large, sweet Vidalia onions, medium chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 cups beef stock (I used the low sodium variety)
1 12 ounce bottle of beer (I used a German Oktoberfest variety) 1/4 cup stone ground mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2-3 bay leaves (fresh or dried)
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4-5 ounces of Swiss cheese, grated
-In a large stockpot over medium/high heat, saute the rye bread cubes in the olive oil and butter, stirring occasionally until they're nicely browned and crisp. Remove the croutons from the pot and set...
