I love making soup. Years ago I worked in a resturaunt where this soup was one of the favorites. I learned how to make it to serve 50 people, and always had a hard time making a version to serve less. When the daughter of the owner of that resturaunt found and shared this version of the recipe with me I was estatic. No one seems to know who Cecile is, but bless her little Basque heart for this family size version of this recipe. If you like garlic, you will love this soup.
Heat oil in heavy 3 quart sauce pan. Add garlic and cook until golden.Remove garlic and cook slices of bread in oil until golden on both sides, watching carefully as they burn easily.Remove from pan and let drain on paper towels. When bread is cooled cut into 1/2 inch pieces and set aside
Add chicken stock and red pepper to remaining oil. Heat for a few minutes and then add bread. Serve hot!
Before removing soup from heat you may stir in a beaten egg if you like.
