Don’t you love eating soup from a bread bowl? I’m confident that the soup always tastes better when it’s served in a delicious bowl made out of bread, especially when you can dunk the the soft spongy top of the bowl into your soup…. YUM.
Did you know that it’s easy to make those heavenly bread bowls at home? It’s true! All it ta kes is a few basic baking ingredients and a little time to let it rise, and you’ve got yourself some tasty bread as well as a house that’s filled with the smell of freshly baked bread, which is almost as good as the taste itself! Keep reading for the easy bread bowl recipe.
I recently made two batches of bread bowls for the family (since there are 6 of us) and I filled up the bowls with Campbell’s Home Style Light Baked Potato Soup with Bacon & Cheddar. It was a match made in heaven! The Campbell’s Home Style Baked Potato Soup is one of their new flavors, and it was so delicious!
Homemade Bread Bowls Recipe
- 1 1/4 cups very warm water
- 1 packet active dry yeast (1 1/4 tsp.)
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp. water
Step 1. Pour the very warm water into a kitchen mixer bowl. Add the yeast and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes.
Step 2. Add the dough hook attatchment to the mixer. Turn the mixer on low, then slowly add in the flour and salt. Add the olive oil and keep mixing until the dough comes together in a ball.
Step 3. Place dough in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise for one hour, or until doubled in size.
Step 4. Divide the dough into 3 pieces. Roll each piece until it is a smooth ball. Pull part of the top of the bread down on all sides and brint it together at the bottom so the ball is smooth. Place each ball onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and cover. Let rise for 30 minutes.
Step 5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the egg white and water and brush each ball of dough with the egg wash mixture. Bake for about 25 minutes.
Once cool, use a knife to cut a round piece from the top and remove as much of the filling as you would like to create the bowl.
Fill with soup and enjoy! (Recipe adapted from here.)
These bowls are such a treat and taste great when combined with soup, especially Campbells Home Style Baked Potato Soup. A bread bowl filled with soup is a great way to get warm and cozy on a cool fall or winter day.
Happy baking (and eating)!
