Bread Bowls

Susan Cutler


Think about serving a "Clam Chowder", "Potato Soup", maybe a "Bean/Lentil Soup or Lobster Stew in a Bread Bowl! I absolutely LOVE the idea. I have been dying for a recipe to make Bread Bowls and finally have found one. I am so excited, I couldn't wait to post this to the world. They are so fun and have such a neat presentation, don't they? The next time I make a soup, I am going to make these bread bowls. I WILL post my picture but until then I am going by the author's picture.

I hope you make these and let me know your findings, suggestions or anything else you would like to say about them

2. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface.

Divide into six portions; shape into balls.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Brush with egg white.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

3. To make bowl, cut the top fourth off of bread; carefully hollow out bottom of each, leaving a 1/4-in. shell.

Dip the removed bread in your soup, discard it, or save it for another use.

You can do the first step by hand or mixer/processor, also!
