This is a Family Favorite!

I like to serve this soup with garlic bread and sometimes in sourdough bowls.



Sour dough bowls i take the middle bread out and set aside. I take melted butter and garlic and rub inside of bowls and broil for 2-3 minutes then fill with soup and put bread pieces from inside sourdough bowls on the side of the plate for dipping
