Garlic, thy mighty

At work we are doing a Garlic promotion currently, and one of my favorite dishes on that menu is a recipe I stumbled upon in a tiny simple old Garlic Cook Booklet. Its Called:

Variety of Garlic
Soup Lloyd J. Harris



6 Cloves Garlic, Minced

6 Large Onions, Finely Chopped

½ Cup Butter

1 teaspoon Flour

pinch of Thyme

Salt and Black pepper

2 cups dry white wine

4 cups chicken stock

5 eggs

6 ounces Grated Swiss Cheese

¾ Cup Heavy Cream


Sautee garlic and onions in butter, until they begin to brown.

Add Flour and stir, add thyme, wine, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 minutes.

Add stock and bring to a boil.


Simmer for an hour.


When ordered, heat a bowl of soup, beat 1 egg in the soup, top with grated cheese and bake in an oven for 10 minutes.


To serve: place a dollop of whipped cream on top.
