Do you love garlic bread? This creamy and delicious garlic bread soup tastes like garlic bread but in a bowl! Served with homemade croutons, but it is also a perfect pairing to dip grilled cheese into.
Hello, garlic lovers! This is the soup for you!
It’s one of those that you can dip anything into – a sandwich, grilled cheese, croutons, leftover ham!
Okay, maybe not the ham, but I’m sure someone out there would!
This creamy garlic soup is a real treat around our house. My in-laws introduced me to garlic bread soup several years ago. Somehow, my soup always tasted different than theirs, so I tweaked it a bit and we love it!

Thickening Garlic Bread Soup
I’m always interested in learning new ways to thicken soups with foods instead of with corn starch or flour. This one is thickened with bread, which is perfect since it is garlic bread soup.
Blending the Soup
Note: If you have a nonstick pot, be careful using a metal immersion blender in the pan! It will scratch the nonstick coating off the bottom of your pot.
To avoid scratches in your pot:
- Use an immersion blender with a plastic base.
- Transfer the soup to another container, such as a large mixing bowl or Tupperware, that won’t be scratched.
- If you use your food processor or blender there’s no worry of scratches.
