Easy Homemade Bread Bowls

Bob loves a good bread bowl full of soup or chili which is what he requested for New Year’s Eve dinner so I decided to give the bread bowls a shot.  They came out pretty good, I’m sure I’ll get better at it.

1 1/2 cups warm water

2 tablespoons instant yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

3 1/2 cups flour, more as needed

2 teaspoons salt

spray bottle with warm water

1  In bowl of mixer with bread hook attached, mix water, yeast, sugar, 3 cups of the flour and salt.  Add remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and is only slightly sticky to the touch.  Knead until smooth, 5 – 10 minutes.  Place dough in lightly greased bowl, cover with damp towel and let rise 30 minutes.

2  Preheat oven to 500.  Punch dough down and divide into four equal pieces.  Shape each piece into a ball and place on lightly greased baking sheet.  Score top of each piece and sprinkle with salt then spray with warm water and let rise 15 minutes.  Bake in for 2 minutes at 500 then reduce heat to 425 and bake an additional 16 – 18 minutes or until golden brown.
