Easy Crusty Bread Bowls*

5-6 c. flour
2 T. yeast
2 T. sugar
1 T. salt
2 c. hot water

Mix 4 cups of flour with yeast, sugar and salt. Add 2 cups hot water. Mix in additional flour until bread dough is formed, and not too sticky. {We used about 6 cups total} Let rise for 15 minutes. Punch down and shape into round loaves. Set on greased cookie sheet. Place in COLD oven. Place a casserole pan of hot water on the bottom rack. Let rise for about 15 minutes. Turn oven on to 400 degrees and bake for 30-35 minutes or until it's a nice golden brown color. Remove from oven and butter the tops. Cool for about 10 minutes. Cut a hole into the top of the bread bowl {be careful not to cut all the way through the bread} and fill with soup. Yum!!

I actually just mixed this all in my bread machine. It was really easy. I also wanted to note that I left the pan of hot water in the oven while I cooked the bread, that's what made it crusty on the outside.
