Bread Bowls and Potato Soup.. The result

I have found my new favorite dish!!!! I was a bit nervous about making bread from scratch but it came out amazing….

My fiance helped which made it fun πŸ™‚

This is his creation, as he called it.

That is just before it had to sit for 35 minutes to expand. Which wasn’t much. I was able to get about 6 round loafs out of it. I only cooked 4 though. They don’t look like bowls at all. I plan on shaping them more next time.

After they were cool I pulled some of the dough out for the soup. Here is the recipe I use for the bread bowls…. You can see that my bowls look NOTHING like theirs.

I also made Potato soup, also a first. I didn’t add any of the spices ( dill weed?) . It came out great with just the potatoes, chicken broth, cheese , a bit of salt and the heavy cream substitute I made. ( 1/3 melted butter and 3/4 milt- add one tbs of flour if using low fat milk.),

I added more cheese and bacon to the top. Since I wasn’t sure if the bowls would hold the soup , I placed the bread bowl in to a soup bowl .

Jon can’t stop talking about it ! πŸ™‚ It was SOOOO YUMMY!Β bread bowlThings I would do differently …. Since making the bread takes a little over 2 hours to make, I will have to start at about 2:30 . I think I started the bread around 3:20. We at about 6. We usually have dinner at 5. Β  Like I mentioned, I want to shape the dough a bit more so they come out looking like bowls or close to it. oh and take better pictures!!

I can’t wait to make this dish again!!!!!
