Silly-Face Bread Bowl

Illustration by Maryn Roos

1 large round sourdough or Italian bread

1 long, skinny banana pepper, stem end removed

1 green olive stuffed with pimento, halved

1 thick slice of cucumber, halved

1 thin slice of red bell pepper


various bite-sized vegetables

  1. Ask an adult to help you cut a circle in the top of the bread.

  2. Remove the circle and pull out bread to form a bowl (save the bread to eat with dip later).

  3. Using the toothpicks and vegetables, put a face on the bread bowl. Stick the yellow pepper into the side of the bowl for a nose. Add the olive halves for eyes, the cucumber halves for ears, and the red bell pepper slice for a mouth.

  4. Fill the bread bowl with chilled dip. Serve with bread and bite-sized vegetables.
