12 Easy Recipes You Should Definitely Be Serving in a Bread Bowl

Whether your first time was at a party or in your neighborhood Panera, I’m willing to bet you remember that first bread bowl experience. Admittedly a bread bowl isn’t the most convenient vessel for soups and dips — you kinda need to finish the contents before you can break into the soaked, doughy bowl, which can be torture — but it’s hands-down the tastiest and most fun.

Any time is the right time for a bread bowl, but winter is definitely the most perfect season for them. They’re great for housing cheesy, Super Bowl-ready dips or for serving warm, cozy soups. The best part is you don’t need to make the bread bowls yourself. You can just hollow out al store-bought loaf or roll.

If you’re looking to add more tasty carbs to your life this season, there are plenty of easy recipes you can serve in a bread bowl. Some are best for parties, while others make great homemade dinners. No matter what the occasion, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for in the 12 easy bread bowl recipes below.
