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
