Soup Accessory of the Day

Before Christmas, I visited here and made a wonderful discovery. If you want to make homemade soup even more special, you can make your own bread bowls. I'm re-posting the recipe here (with my edits). They are very easy and surprisingly quick for something that requires yeast and rising. (pictured above with yummy Minnesota Wild Rice Soup)


2 Tbsp. yeast
2 cups warm water
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
5 cups flour

Mix yeast and sugar with with warm water and allow to sit for 5-10 mins until foamy. Add salt and flour and knead until relatively stiff.(I used the dough hook on my Kitchenaid) Form into 6 round balls and place on greased cookie sheets. Allow space so they don't touch each other. Let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Cut a circle in the top of the roll, pull off top and scoop out bread to make a bowl.

Ilene said...

So when am I coming over for some soup?

Because that is the easiest way for me to make the bread rolls.

Yeah, a Stars Wars Encyclopedia does exist. Didn't know how we lived without it.

Em, I've never tried it with whole wheat flour, because I only made them the one time. So let me know how it works out for you, because I would love to make it that way too.
