    littleturtle's Note:

    French cream of garlic soup topped with toasted bread and grated cheese and browned in the oven. Creamy, rich comfort food. Don't be put off by the amount of garlic. It mellows and becomes smooth tasting as it cooks.

      This was very tasty. I cut the recipe in half. I added some red pepper flakes in hopes that this soup would clear my sinuses and it certainly helped! I divided the 3 servings into 2 ramekins and topped with homemade french wheat bread and gruyere. It made a great dinner for 2.

      At first bite I thought the thyme was too strong but by the third bite I knew it was just fine the way it was. I didn't use the wheat bread as there was none to be had but even with the plain ol' white French baguette, this was delicious. TFS
