Easy Bread Bowls

By bellalimento |

Have you ever seen bread bowls and wondered how to make them? Well here’s a little secret, with a little help from refrigerated Pillsbury Crusty French Loaf you can make them yourself at home in about 10 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than that. AND the best part {besides being incredibly delicious} it’s an edible bowl which means one less dish you have to wash ; ) We’ve filled ours with our homey and hearty CHICKEN POT PIE mixture. They would also be perfect filled with chili or soup. Here’s another tip: with Thanksgiving right around the corner, simply substitute turkey for chicken in our chicken pot pie recipe and you have yourself a take two meal made with leftover turkey! You can find the recipe and a step by step photo tutorial after the jump!

    I followed this recipe and it works great. I doubled it and made 12 bowls. They are quite hard and can hold the ‘wettest’ of soups, and are bland tasting, but are really designed to soak up the soup or what ever you put in them. I also used a few to make a fancy tuna salad with lettuce for lunch. It was a fun experiment.
