This will really warm the cockles of your heart. My kids love it. Elegant enough for guests. I always use more fish than it calls for. Thanks to my friend Catherine for this wonderful recipe. This template won't allow, but I use a generous sprinkling of Old Bay, lemon pepper and some seasoning salt to season the fillets. Bread bowls make an elegant option. Sometimes we use hard dinner rolls as the bowls. They are smaller, so our children can eat the whole thing. Hollow out the dinner rolls and bake for a few minutes until beginning to toast. Place the rolls in a muffin tin and fill with soup. Top with a little cheese and bake to brown.
