Yesterday it was a rainy and gloomy day here in SW Florida and as much as I know the calendar says it is August, Miss V was asking for chili for supper.
I found the recipe for the bread bowls on BreadWorld. We didn't actually use them for our chili. I sliced one up and had it on the side. They didn't come out exactly like I was thinking. I was hoping for a crispier crust. Maybe next time I make them I will have to use and egg white wash. Also when I slashed one of the bowls, it deflated a bit.
Makes 2 (6-inch) bread bowls
3 / 4 cup + 1 tablespoon water
1 / 2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
3 / 4 teaspoon salt
3 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast
Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
Divide dough into 2 equal portions; shape each into smooth ball. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
With sharp knife, make 4 (1 / 4-inch deep) slashes in crisscross fashion on top of loaves. Bake at 375° F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; cool on wire rack.
Cut off 1 / 3 of loaf; hollow out loaf to form 1 / 4-inch thick bowl. Fill bowl with soup.
Another thing, is they are huge! I think next time I will just make four small bowls.
