Big Game Bread Bowls

"You'll score points when you spoon the half-time meal into these hearty bowls. The bread's spongy texture makes it the perfect container for the creamy full-flavored chowder...or a thick soup, stew or chili."

  1. In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
  2. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into six portions; shape into balls. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with egg white. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  3. To make bowl, cut the top fourth off of bread; carefully hollow out bottom of each, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use).
  4. For chowder, in a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add mixed vegetables. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in milk until combined. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in bacon, bouillon is dissolved. Serve in bread bowls.

My rating is only for the bread bowls. I have made these twice in the past week. They are very easy and so yummy! Instead of a bread machine, I use a kitchen aid mixer and let the dough rise ...

These turned out FABULOUS! I don't have a bread machine so I used my kitchenaid mixer. I doubled the recipe since most said it made smaller bowls. It made 8 normal sized bread bowls for me. I pu...

Only made the bread bowls this time. I will probably try the soup another time. The bowls were very easy. I'm not much of a bread shaper, so my bowls were not so perfectly round, but they're ...

Made these a few weeks ago...excellent flavor, though my boys are big eaters, so for a main-dish bread bowl, they're kind of small (I followed the recipe and made 6). But for a Super Bowl Party...

I really liked this recipe. The only reason I gave four stars is that mine flattened out more like disks than bowls. I allowed them plenty of time to rise, though the temp may have been too warm...

My second try on the bread bowls turned out ok. My machine's dough setting is 1 1/2 hrs long so my first batch ended up overrising by the time I even took it out of the machine. It still doubled...
