I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Bread Bowls

Bread Bowls


  • 1 packet fast acting yeast
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (between 110 and 120 degrees)
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white + 1 tablespoon water


  1. Put the yeast, oil, sugar and warm water in the bowl of a mixer - mix about a minute using the dough hook
  2. Add the bread flour and continue mixing
  3. When it starts coming together, add the all purpose flour a little at a time over about 30 seconds - continue mixing until it’s relatively smooth - about 3 -5 minutes
  4. Remove and form into a ball, put in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a slightly damn towel
  5. Put in a not drafty, warmish kinda spot and let rise until approx doubled in size - 45 min to an hour
  6. Remove towel, and poke your fingers into the dough to deflate, and remove from bowl onto a very lightly floured surface and shape into a log, cut into 3 pieces
  7. Form into tight balls, by pulling down the sides and ending up with a seam on the bottom (watch them being made in the clam chowder video) then put on a lightly oil sheet pan, make an ‘X’ in the top to minimize cracking, then cover with the towel again and let rise 30 more minutes
  8. Preheat oven to 400
  9. Beat egg white with water, then brush over the top of each
  10. Put an extra sheet pan into the oven, and pour about a cup of water onto it
  11. Then put the bread bowls in and bake 25-30 minutes, or until gorgeous
