Dilly Bread

I just love the flavor of dill and every year we grow dill in our herb garden. When it heads out I always save the seed then we have wonderful fresh dill seed to season special recipes. I really enjoy making this old favorite with my homegrown dill seed.

Dilly Bread

Dilly Bread
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 packages yeast
1/2 cups warm water
2  cups small curd cottage cheese, slightly warm
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons minced onion
4 teaspoon dill seed
2 teaspoon salt
1.2 teaspoon soda
2 unbeaten eggs
2 tablespoons butter
about 6 cups flour or enough to make stiff dough
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water with the sugar. After the yeast is proofed out add the cottage cheese, onion dill seed, salt, and eggs. Mix well. Add the soda to a little of the flour and add the flour 1 cup at a time mixing after each addition until the dough is stiff. Place dough in a well oiled (I use Olive Oil) bowl, cover with a cloth and set in a very warm place. Let the dough double in size. After the dough has doubled in size, divide into loaves and cover each loaf with a cloth. Place in a very warm place and let rise until again. Bake at 350 degrees 40 to 50 minutes. Place on a cooling rack and cover with butter then salt lightly.
This will make 3 medium size loaves or 2 medium loaves and 2 small ones. It is delicious and be sure and try a slice toasted.

Let The Dough Double In Size

Bake, Butter, Salt, Cool

Enjoy!

Peace and Joy

    How much small curd cottage cheese did you use?

  7. This sounds so interesting. I've never made anything with dill except dip. It sure makes beautiful loaves! Wish I could taste it now, as usual! :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. I have dill in my spice cabinet, but haven't had very many reasons to use it. I only use it for dips, mostly. Thanks for linking to Must Try Monday and giving me another way to try it!

  11. I've had cottage cheese bread before. Both with and without the dill. Everyone always loves it, and my Great Uncle requests that I make him a loaf of this instead of getting him a gift every Christmas.

    Yours looks really good too, and I bet everyone who tries it loves it just as much. Thank you Miz Helen for adding this to the "Your Cozy Home" party. Warm homemade bread smeared with butter would make any house feel like a cozy home! Hope to see you again next week!
