Also called "Garlic Lovers' Soup". If you don't have any stale bread, this works just as well with croutons or toast cubes.

Loved this so much I made it two days in a row, but between the steam and being hungry was not able to get a photo either day. I made this using some good homemade stock. The first day I used a real egg but it was the last one so the second day I used a quarter cup tempered egg beats and we could not tell the difference. This has become a new staple in our home thanks for the post.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 -5 large garlic cloves, minced
- 4 cups chicken broth or 4 cups chicken stock
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup stale bread cubes
- 1 egg, beaten
Directions See How It's Made
- In a soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat; saute the garlic until golden (but do not burn). Remove the pot from the heat and cool slightly. Then return the pot to low heat and slowly add the broth, salt, pepper, and bread cubes; simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Remove 2 tablespoons of the soup to a small bowl and mix with the beaten egg. Add the egg mixture back to the soup and stir. Continue cooking until the soup starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
