Bread Bowls for Soup

I made these for our parent preschool meeting last night. They turned out very yummy and were just enough since we had other food besides soup!

1/2 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
2 TBL butter, softened
2 TBL sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 cups all-purpose flour OR 2 cups all-purpose flour and 2 cups wheat flour
4 1/2 TBL yeast
1 egg white, beaten

In a mixing bowl add water, milk, sugar, and yeast. When yeast is dissolved, add salt and flour. Mix well. I used my kitchen aid w/ the dough hook. It mixed for approximately 5 minutes. It seemed a bit dry so I added a few drops of water to moisten the dough just a bit. Turn dough ontol a lightly floured surface. Divide into six portions; shape into balls. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with egg white. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes (the all white flour bread only took 20 minutes...the mix of white & wheat flour took 25 minutes.) Cool on wire racks. To make bowl, cut the top fourth off of bread; carefully hollow out bottom of each, leaving about 1/4" shell. I made Cheese Veggie Chowder while another mom made chili. It was very yummy! JR loved just eating the this recipe could also work for rolls...just make them smaller then you're dividing the dough.
