This recipe creates a moist, delicious bread with onion and dill seed. It can be eaten alone, with your favorite spread or dip, or for gatherings, you can carve a bowl into the center and put your favorite dip, or even marinara. YUM!
2 pkgs dry yeast
1/2 c. of warm water
2 c. SMALL CURD cottage cheese
4 T. sugar
2 T. Instant Minced Onion
2 T. butter
4 t. dill seed
2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
5 c. all purpose flour
Put both pkgs of the yeast into the warm water.
While that’s doing it’s magic, in a large bowl, combine all other ingredients except the flour. Then add the yeast and blend in.
Add the flour, a bit at a time to form a STIFF dough, beating well after each addition.
Cover. Let rise for at least an hour. Stir down dough and divide. Place each half of the dough into a greased 8 or 9 inch round cake pan, let rise until light.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min. if using a dark pan. If using a thicker casserole type dish, baking may take longer. Check with a toothpick for doneness.
Brush with butter after removing from oven, sprinkle with coarse salt.
Makes 2 round loaves. (Freeze one after cooled if desired).
