Edible Bowls. Oh! EDIBOWLS.
This is pretty much a dream come true for me. A BOWL you can EAT. A carbolicious vehicle for hot chili straight into my mouth. Honk honk.
I wonder if I could make bread glasses. Or bread forks. Ooooor bread sofas. Bread tables and chairs. Ooooh bread cloooothes. OMG if I open a bread store would you be my customer? WE COULD FRANCHISE.
Grab some Pillsbury Simply Rustic French bread, a couple cans of Progresso chili, some herbs, garlic salt, parsley and cheese!
Give your herbs a good mince. They're so pretty, aren't they?
Now, take the Pillsbury French bread and roll it into a ball.
Add the minced herbs and garlic salt! Like all sprinkly on top.
Mix and knead the salt and herbs into the dough, then divide the ball in half, making two smaller balls. Roll 'em out!
Now, find a couple of bowls that would fit your bread bowls. You don't want them too too big. Brush the bottoms and sides with a little oil.
Then place the dough over the bowl and snuggle them to the bowls, making them as even as you can all the way around. Mine weren't perfect, but I've healed since.
Bake them for about 20 minutes, let cool, flip them over and fill with piping hot Progresso chili!
Oh, and garnish with some good crumbled or shredded cheese and fresh parsley!
I'm seriously going to make bread furniture.*Bev will sell the bread furniture to you! If she doesn't eat it first. For more musings, visit her blog at Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
