Just Dough It!!!

Here is a fun idea - Have you ever had soup in a Bread Bowl? I have always had a little thing for bread bowls for soups and also for salads.. So, I decided to make them at home.

You will need:
Frozen Bread Dough (1 loaf makes 3 bowls)
1 Egg

First - wrap plastic wrap around the frozen bread dough and let thaw but not rise.  When thawed, cut each loaf into 3 parts.

Prepare baking sheet with non stick spray. Roll dough into balls and place on baking sheet.

Brush dough with egg.

Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non stick spray. Place in a draft free place to allow them to rise.

Now since we keep our house fairly cold which is not a "friendly environment" for rising dough - I usually put dough into the oven and turn on the light to warm it up in there a bit. Let the dough rise until it's double in size.

When double in size - remove plastic wrap and preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Bake approx 20 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool completely. You can even make them a day ahead.

When you are ready to serve, slice off the top and scoop out the "bowl". Fill with soup and enjoy!! YUMMY!!

We had Chili in them - but another good soup for the bread bowl is the Chicken Wild Rice soup from Crafty Vegas Mom - I've made it multiple times and it's SO GOOD.

I'm having a couple of girlfriends over for a birthday get-together. I'd planned soup, so this will make it extra special! Perfect timing -- thanks
