Introduction: How to Make Edible Bread Bowls

These are bowls made from bread - serve them filled with Chili, soup, stew, curry, casserole or anything you like - eat the filling, then eat the bowl!

They're edible - they're bread-ible.

The recipe for the basic dough is detailed in my other video, here:

    Maybe you could add onto this with written instructions so people can print it out?

    Same result for me. The video doesn't seem to be available at that location anymore.

    I want to make one, but the video doesn't work. These sound so cool!

    can you make bread bowl with store bought frozen bread dough?

    This is a cool idea and its making me hungry

    this is so cool! :) thank you so much for the instructable.

    Clever! I've always seem the clam chowder version here in CA, where you just take a small loaf of sourdough, slice off the top, and cut out some of the dough in the center. But you always wind up with too much bread, and the center is wasted anyway. I like your approach better...

    It's interesting... I think there's a strong possibility that aliens, asked to sum up our civilisation in one sentence would (assuming they didn't mention all the wars) say "They like putting things in, or on bread". The clam chowder thing you describe sounds a bit like the serving method for a South African (I've never been there) street food called 'Bunny Chow' - sounds like a brand name for pet food, but actually consists of half a square loaf of crusty bread, with the crumb scooped out and the void filled with meat and gravy or curry. (I sort of had that in mind when I created these bread bowls).

    Here's a typical example of clam chowder in a bread bowl, courtesy of Food History:


    Clam... Chowder? O.O I <3 Clam Chowder :D

    I had this amazing clam chowder in a restaurant in Hollywood, FL when I went to visit. It was somewheres on the broadwalk, and the restaurant had broadwalk in its name. on the menu it says it's 1st place award for something, and it was great.

    lemme guess... it costs very high :D

    no, actually. 4 bucks a bowl I think.

    ooohhhhh chowder, bread, bowl!!!!!!! its amazing

    Thanks - that does look good... mmmmm....

    Yeah, bunny chow is traditionally filled with a sort of curried mince, and the inside bits are served on the side to scoop the mince out instead of using a spoon or fork. I believe it originated amongst the working classes as a quick, easy and filling hot meal that didn't leave a mess afterwards to wash up, as the whole thing was eaten.

    Instructable version, please? Metacafe is blocked on my computer, and I'm just dying to try this. Thanks!
