Are you ready for this?

Garlic. Onions. Cream. White wine. Oh, yes. These are just a few of the ingredients that combine to make this wonderful, creamy soup, brought to us by n8tivenyer.

I made this soup for our family. It was a big hit. Dad loved it—had several bowls of it. Even Grandma said it was very good.

Here’s what you’ll need: white wine, chicken stock, olive oil, French bread, heavy cream, Gruyère cheese, garlic, onions, and a bay leaf.

Begin by prepping your ingredients. Tear the bread into small pieces. Slice the onion thinly. Smash the garlic, peel, and crush with a garlic press.

Heat the olive oil in a pan set over medium heat.

Add the onions and garlic. Cook until the garlic and onions begin to caramelize, about 10-12 minutes. Add the wine, cover, reduce heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

Add the chicken stock and bay leaf. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Now for some magic: add the bread, remove from heat, and allow to soak for 10 minutes.

Remove the bay leaf. Using a blender, puree the soup, in batches, until smooth. Return to the pot. Add the cream and salt and pepper to taste.

Heat the oil in a large pot. Add onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat for 10 -12 minutes; the onion and garlic will begin to caramelize. Add the wine, cover, reduce heat, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the stock and bay leaf.

I was born in the month of August. County Fair month! Every year my birthday fell during the County Fair. Between showing lambs and other activities my parents always managed to have a party for my birthday.
