Bread Bowls

I have never made bread bowls before and I thought it would be great to learn how or to try it out. So I found this recipe over at My Kitchen Cafe and decided to try it out. They turned out really good and we had homemade Chicken noodle soup with them. So yummy!!! It is finally starting to be a bit cooler here about 75 degrees so it is nice to have some relief from the heat and have soup for dinner!!!

Bread Bowls
1 1/2 T. yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water
2 tsp salt
2 T. vegetable oil
7 cups all purpose flour
1 T. cornmeal
2 egg white ( used the whole egg)
1 T. water

In a large bowl dissolve the yeast in the water. Let Stand until creamy and bubbly.(about 10 minutes) Or just use instant yeast like I do and mix it in with the flour for 30 seconds before adding to the other ingredients. Add the salt, oil, and 4 cups flour to the water mixture;beat well. Stir in the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time beating well after each addition until a soft but not sticky dough is formed.(you may not need all 7 cups flour) When the dough has pulled together, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover and get rise until double in size about 1 hour. Punch dough down and divide into 6 or 8 equal portions. Shape each into a round ball. Place them ona lightly greased baking sheet sprinkled with the corn meal. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 35 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl beat together the egg and water;lightly brush the loaves with half of the egg wash. Bake for 15 minutes. Brush each loaf with remaining egg wash and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on Wire racks. Cut the tops off and hollow out the roll on the inside and fill with you favorite soup. YUMMY!!!!!!!
