    1 1/4   c            Chicken broth
    2       ts           Olive oil
    1       sm           Clove garlic or 1/2 large,-
                         -peeled and crushed
    1       sl           Cuban or French bread
    1       ea           Egg
                         Salt and freshly ground-
                         -pepper to taste
    1       t            Minced parsley
    2       ts           Grated hard queso blanco-
                         -(see Note) or Parmesan-
   Bring the chicken broth to a boil.  In a small
   skillet, heat the oil.  Add the garlic and saute until
   golden and aromatic.  Place the bread in a large soup
   bowl, pour the oil and garlic over it, add the boiling
   chicken broth, and immediately break the egg into the
   soup.  It will cook in 2 to 3 minutes.  Add salt and
   pepper, and sprinkle with the parsley and cheese.
   NOTE:  There are dozens of quesos blancos, or white
   cheeses, which is exactly how the name translates.
   Some are soft, some fresh, but many aged. Queso blanco
   generally is mild flavored, though some of the aged
   ones can be quite tangy.  They are found in markets in
   Florida and in most cities with colonies of residents
   of Caribbean, Cuban, or Mexican ancestry. Try the
   cheeses, and choose the one that suits your taste.
