Description

These bowls are perfect for holding your favorite soup and the make for a delicious second course when the bowl is empty!

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Yeast
  • 1-½ cup Lukewarm Water (more As Needed To Make A Smooth, Soft Dough)
  • 3-¾ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ cups Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil

Preparation

In a large bowl, let yeast dissolve in the warm water until creamy, about 5 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients – by hand, mixer or bread machine — and knead till you’ve created a smooth dough.

Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 45 minutes; it should become puffy. Divide the dough into 5-6 pieces, depending on how large you want your bread bowl to be. Roll each piece into a ball. Place on a lightly greased or parchment covered baking sheet.

Cover the bread bowls with greased plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours (or up to 24 hours); this step will give the bread bowls extra flavor, and a delightfully crisp-chewy texture.

Two or more hours before serving, remove the bread bowls from the refrigerator. Uncover, and let them sit for about one hour while you preheat the oven to 425°F.

Just before baking, slash the top surface of the bowls several times with a sharp razor/knife to allow them to expand. Bake for 22 to 28 minutes, until the bowls are deep brown, and sound hollow when thumped on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and cool on a rack.

Before serving, cut off the “lid” of the bread and carefully hollow out the bread bowl (pulling out as much of the interior bread as you like), reserving pieces to be used as toasted seasoned croutons for your soup, or tuck them away for a later use like fresh bread crumbs.

Delicious!!!!

Thank you for this recipe!! I made it and filled the bowls with the Pioneer Woman’s brocolli cheese soup, and it was a hit! Delicious to the very last bite.

These are so yummy – and easy (except for the planning-ahead part…)!
