  • Stand Mixer
  • Cookie Sheet Pan
  • Serrated Knife
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray / Parchment Paper


  • cups warm water
  • 11 teaspoons active dry yeast 2 (5½ teaspoon packages)
  • ½ cup butter 1 stick (melted)
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 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.


  • PRO TIP: Keep the inside of your bread bowl since it is perfect to dip in your soup!
