Divide dough into 4 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball. Place balls on prepared baking sheet, brush with melted butter & top with shredded cheese and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle, cut a small portion from the top of each ball (reserve cut-out piece to put on top). Press into the center, making a bowl for the chili. Spoon in chili into the bread bowls and top with desired toppings.
Bread bowls are easy to make, expecially when you use purchased frozen bread dough from the store. I use a loaf of Rhodes Bread dough, but there are probably others just as good. Fill them with your favorite Chili or soup! (I will post my simple chili recipe soon).
For the bread bowls:
1 pound fresh or frozen bread or pizza dough, thawed according to package directions
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
