Cottage cheese and dill team up beautifully in this hearty bread that is sure to be a big hit.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 pinch white sugar
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 teaspoons dill seed
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Stir the yeast into the warm water, and add a pinch of sugar. Set aside to proof.
In a large saucepan, warm the cottage cheese and margarine until the fat is melted. Remove from heat, and add sugar, onion flakes, dill seed, salt, and soda. Mix in egg and dissolved yeast. Stir in flour for a stiff dough. Place dough in a greased bowl, and turn several times to thoroughly coat. Let rise until double in size in a warm place, usually 50 to 60 minutes.
Stir the dough until it is deflated. Place into an 8 inch round, buttered 2 quart casserole. Let rise 30 to 40 minutes in a warm place.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 50 minutes until golden brown. Brush top with melted margarine. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
