These last few months have been long and cold for us here in Utah. We tend to eat soup by the gallon during the winter to try and warm up. Nothing goes better with soup than a nice, warm bread bowl! They were so easy and delicious, I will never buy them from the bakery again!
Homemade Bread Bowls Recipe:
(Makes 6 bread bowls)
2 cups + 4 Tablespoons warm water
2 packages of active dry yeast (5 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 teaspoons salt
6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Using a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, add warm water and sprinkle in yeast. Let dissolve for a few minutes until yeast becomes foamy. Add melted butter, sugar and salt and mix until combined. Gradually add flour. Once combined, allow your mixer to knead the dough for about 5 minutes (you could do this by hand if you weren’t using a mixer, but it may get a little tiring!). Punch dough down and form into 6 equal sized balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool and cut off the top, remove some of the bread from the inside and fill with soup or dip.
Look for soup to enjoy in your bread bowl?
