  • 2 cans (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original French Bread
  • 2 cans (18.5 oz) Progresso™ Rich & Hearty Soup Chicken Corn Chowder (or other favorite flavor)


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Remove dough from cans. Cut each loaf into 3 equal pieces. Shape each piece into ball, placing seam at bottom so dough is smooth on top. Place dough balls, seam side down on the cookie sheet and bake for 22 to 26 minutes or until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in a pot heat the 2 cans of soup over medium-high heat.
  • 4
    When bread bowls have cooled, cut the top of each loaf with a sharp serrated knife. Press dough inside the bread bowl down making room for the soup. Spoon about 1 to 1 1/2 cups warm soup into bowls and serve. Place the top of each bread bowl next to filled bread bowl.
