As the weather cools down, serve this tasty Garlic Bread Soup with salad or sandwich and watch them ask for seconds!

Chef Brian Landry is the Chef/Co-owner of Jack Rose, Hot Tin, Bayou Bar, and Silver Whistle in New Orleans; and Marsh House, L.A. Jackson, and Killebrew in Nashville. He’s a New Orleans native, a passionate chef, a supporter of regional foodways, and a father of three. Landry knows things will be different this year when school resumes. With parents juggling work, home classrooms, and scheduling, finding time to cook family meals will be challenging.


I have a few different recipes that Chef Landry is allowing me to share. First up is this fantastic Garlic Bread Soup. Not only is it simple for back-to-school, but it’s going to be perfect as the temps start to drop and you need a bowl of warm soup to keep you going. If garlic is a favorite ingredient of yours, I have this Garlic Chicken Drumstick recipe you’ll love!

The other recipes that I have coming up from Chef Landry are Fried Chicken Parmesan, Cauliflower Steak, his Red Beans and Rice, and the recipe he cooked on his appearance on NBC’s The Today Show: Easy Garlic Clove Shrimp.

I hope you enjoy this Garlic Bread Soup recipe! Make sure you stop by one of Chef Landry’s restaurants if you happen to be in either New Orleans or Nashville.
