Garlic and Cheese Soup (Anti-Vampire Potion) is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Soup Swappers. We get  together  once  per month to share our  favorite and best soup recipes.

This month,  of course, we are sharing recipes that are perfect for Halloween.

Garlic and Cheese Soup

Of course, the perfect recipe in my mind is  one  that  dispels vampires. As I curl up  with my movie night with  all the favorites: Dracula, Le ‘Estat, Barnabas  Collins, Blade, Edward Cullen, Eric Northman  and more, I really am going to need a ton of garlic to keep them from biting me where the sun don’t shine, IYKWIM.

And since garlic  is the best  kept secret for holding them off until they disappear into  their unearthly coffins, this garlic cheese soup does just the trick.

The roasted  garlic is mildly  flavored,  so as not to  overpower  you, and just  enough  to  go with  the cheese. Which is blended  with both white and  sharp cheddar, but you can use whichever  you  prefer. Just make sure  to stir  it  in  off the heat so  the proteins don’t separate out  and make it  stringy (excess heat does that).

    • I try to keep a clean mouth here, even if I drop the bomb five times a day on Facebook. LOL! But one day my potty mouth will be a skeleton out of the closet as I will be found out. Then there won’t be any pretense to aw-shucking the corn and stirring the fudge. Ha!
