Here’s a fun way to serve soup or stew on a cold winter day! This bread bowl recipe is very simple and such a delicious way to spruce up a meal. It looks very impressive, tastes great, and the best part is that you get to eat the bowl when you are done! The kids love that part (actually, so did I!).
This recipe is done in the breadmaker, though you can also adapt the recipe to make it by hand or in a stand mixer.

- 2 Tbsp. yeast
- 1/4 c. olive oil
