Bread Bowls

Has anyone ever made bread bowls? I am craving cheesy broccoli soup in a bread bowl but have never made bread bowls. Any tips you can share?

Sourdough or Rye makes the best bread bowls. A 4 ounce chunk of dough will rise enough to make a bread bowl.

If you don't want to learn to make bread you can buy round loaves of bread dough from the freezer department at the store. They make good bread bowls. But what is even easier is to buy some dough from your pizzaria...they will sell it. Now , I love to make my own bread but it is time consuming so I have used both of these options on occaision.

I've been making Sourdough bread bowls everyday this week.
A basic sourdough starter will work just fine if your in a hurry. Use it at room temp. One batch after it's risen will make 8 bowls. I weighed the dough of each one, tried to keep them all the same weight, 5oz balls. Brushed them after the tops were cut with beaten egg whites. Baked @400 30 to 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Had I been thinking store bought would have saved me a lot of time.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
