How To Make Edible Bread Bowls

video 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.
Completely Consumable Crockery - a Tasty, Toasty Treat.

The recipe for the basic dough is detailed in my other video, here: http://www.instructables.com/id/You-can-make-bread/

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

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!
Oh, and I gave it a 5-star rating anyways. Thanks again!

*mouth drools at the thought of this and chili* Totally trying this.... I wonder if you can do the same for cookies.... so you can put milk in them...

Great instructable. *thumbs up*
Hmmmm...I imagine it'd be hard to keep a liquid like milk in them without them being very stable. however something like oh say, Ice cream or pudding would be good :D Of course, it all depends on the density of the cookie you make, too, and how the dough is layed out to bake.
yeah, you are probably right... the ice cream thing would be the tastiest, but the pudding would be the best bet

The cookies idea is interesting... I might have to experiment with it...

I always wondered how to do this. I will try this out for the next family get-together. There will be a lot less bowls to wash!

Yum ... Tim Hortons (Its a coffee/Donut shop in Canada) Makes a thing like this. Definitely a try for me.

Yummy! You can also take any dough and drape it over a ball of tinfoil if you don't have ovensafe glass or ceramic bowls for the shape. Grease or spray the forms with nonstick spray to make sure they come off easily. Bake some dough on the side to make the cover/lid.

Wonderful idea, could have thought of that myself ;-) I certainly do it soon, not yet sure what to fill in. Something with cheese comes to my mind, or a "Basler Mehlsuppe". Rate+ Great!

Love it! Just what I need for my husband and son. Thank you
hang on aren't these just yorkshire puddings.... (could be an english thing - google image search it)
Atomic Shrimp (author)  davidprosser6 years ago
No. Yorkshire puds are made of pancake batter and although they do look quite similar, they're much lighter than these bread bowls. Yorkshire puds are often served filled with meat and gravy, but the result is something that goes deliciously soggy and no longer constrains the contents. These bowls last easily long enough for the contents to be eaten without leaking through.
such a great way to reduce the amount of washing up!

mmmmmmm... french onion soup in a bread bowl.(drolling on keyboard) :)
Atomic Shrimp (author)  ry259206 years ago
Now I like the sound of that!
you like the sound of people drooling on keyboards? lol
At first I thought it said How to make Edible Bread... But this is really good. Great bowl. Tastes good too. goes good with chili. Hot, jalapeño chili.

I have some "mini" versions of this - bite sized bread pieces filled with tomato bisque or onion soup. Pretty good, but not very soup-like by the time the soups start out thick and get partially soaked up by the bread... As patrik says, one of these is quite a lot of bread...
