Well, if you do a Google search for "in a bread bowl", you get almost  
40,000 hits. Somebody's certainly eating them, or at least serving them.

I can see how people might like something like that under the right  
circumstances. For myself, I'd be torn between thinking, if you eat  
it, it's probably a bit too much bread, and if you don't, it's a waste.

Some people also just aren't fans of moistened bread, even though it's  
the basis for a lot of great dishes. I used to work for a chef who, if  
she had a knife in her hand, and you casually mentioned something  
about dipping bread in your soup, or even just mentioned the words,  
"wet bread", would shiver and, likely as not, cut herself. Of course,  
she was also certifiably insane, but still...
