My Garlicky Bread Soup

Norma DeRemer


I have used this recipe for so many years I honestly don't remember where I got it. My friends and family have asked me for this recipe. My Son Aaron in a chef and when I made it for him, he took the recipe with him when he left and added potatoes to it and called it Chowder. I love when he takes my recipes and makes something different with them. Funny thing is that I get phone calls asking me for what I put in some of my recipes so he can make a new dish where ever he is working at that time. He asked me for one of my sauces for a specal client. I felt proud that he had to ask his Mom.
