Bread Bowls for Soups, Stews, and Dips

Just found these and will have to make them soon - Love the idea, and they look delicious. I think a good chicken pot pie filling would be great served in these bowls. I love the idea of herbs cooked into the bowls.

NOTE: All photos are from the website listed below.


Ingredients:

all-purpose flour 2 cups

semolina or whole wheat flour 1 tbsp

instant yeast 3/4 tsp

salt 1 tsp

water, lukewarm 3/4 cup

olive oil or melted butter 2 1/2 tbsp

herbs and ground spices (optional)

Directions:

Mix Mix together all of the ingredients until a shaggy

ball of dough is formed.

Knead 6 to 8 minutes, until a smooth ball of dough is formed.

Rest 30 minutes

Preheat Oven 400ºF / 205ºC

Prepare a sheet pan lined with parchment or silicone and 4 to 8 ovenproof bowls. I used ramekins and pyrex bowls. Lightly coat the bottoms with oil or nonstick spray.

Lay herbs and/or spices on top of the upturned bowls (optional).

Divide 4 to 8 pieces

Rest 10 minutes to allow the gluten to relax and make

flattening easier.

Shape Flatten the pieces of dough into circles about 1/4-

to 1/2-inch thick.


Pop any large bubbles and lightly brush with oil or

melted butter. Lay on the prepared upturned bowls,

oiled side down, and gently pat down to eliminate air

pockets.
 

Bake Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 400ºF / 205ºC, rotating the pan halfway through baking.
Cool at least 15 minutes
