Make Good is Easy
Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
Divide dough into 2 equal portions; shape each into smooth ball. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

With sharp knife, make 4 (1 / 4-inch deep) slashes in crisscross fashion on top of loaves. Bake at 375° F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; cool on wire rack.

Cut off 1 / 3 of loaf; hollow out loaf to form 1 / 4-inch thick bowl. Fill bowl with soup.

Note: Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; it should form a soft, smooth ball around the blade. If dough is too dry or stiff, add water in 1-teaspoon increments until the right consistency is reached. If dough is too soft or slack, add bread flour in 1-teaspoon increments to achieve proper consistency. Do not add more than 3 to 4 tablespoons of liquid or flour.
