“I found this in IN STYLE magazine. My family loves it, especially the wonderful, garlicky croutons. It takes some time, but is definitely worth the effort. For those who are watching their cholesterol, it is eggless. And for those with an aversion to anchovies, there are none! For a fabulous garlic feast, pair this with my Eugenia's Funghi al Forno recipe.”
