DIRECTIONS

  • If using a bread machine, put the ingredients in according to your own directions; put on dough cycle and keep checking to make sure you have a smooth dough.
  • By mixer or by hand, mix till you have a smooth dough; rise covered for 45 minutes.
  • When machine is done its cycle or dough has risen the manual way for 45 minutes, divide into five pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Cover the balls with greased plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours (or up to 24 hours)--this step will give the bread bowls extra flavor and a delightfully crisp-chewy texture.
  • Two or more hours before serving, remove from refrigerator.
  • Uncover and let them sit for about another 30 minutes while you preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Just before baking, slash the top surface several times, very carefully, which will allow them to expand.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 22-28 minutes till bowls are a deep golden brown and sound hollow when thumped on the bottom.
