Bread Bowls

I have a tiny *big* obsession with carbs.  Bad yes taste sooo good YES.  So when it comes to bread bowls I love them.  Salad in a bread bowl and soup in a bread bowl, dip in a bread bowl they are all equally amazing.  I personally love potato soup in it just because it is think and it is easy to scoop with the bread I bet Chili and stew would be amazing as well!

(Makes 6 bread bowls)

2 cups + 4 Tablespoons warm water
2 packages of active dry yeast (5 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 teaspoons salt
6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 

Using a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, add warm water and sprinkle in yeast.  Let dissolve for a few minutes until yeast becomes foamy.  Add melted butter, sugar and salt and mix until combined.  Gradually add flour.  Once combined, allow your mixer to knead the dough for about 5 minutes (you could do this by hand if you weren't using a mixer, but it may get a little tiring!).  Punch dough down and form into 6 equal sized balls.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise until doubled.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let cool and cut off the top, remove some of the bread from the inside and fill with soup or dip.
