Dilly Bread

I got this recipe from a great neighbor that moved away several years ago. Missy was one of those treasured neighbors that you are just so comfortable with - we watched each other's children, we borrowed cooking ingredients on a regular basis and enjoyed just hanging out. I was so sad when she and her family moved away. Missy was a great cook. I remember when she made this and she had me guess what strange ingredient might be in this bread and I happened to guess "cottage cheese"- I was right. There are not many foods I don't like - but cottage cheese is one of them... along with hominy, black licorice, root beer etc. :)

Enjoy this bread. The cottage cheese melts and you don't even know it is there. Enjoy with soups, dips or just with some softened butter.

Dilly Bread

1 pkg yeast
1 cup cottage cheese
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp softened butter
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp. minced onion
2 tsp dill seeds
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Soften yeast in 1/4 cup warm water ( 100 degrees or so). Combine cottage cheese, sugar, butter and egg in a separate bowl. Gently stir yeast and water and add to cottage cheese mixture; Add soda, onion, dill seeds and salt; add flour - mix and knead. Form into a ball and place in a buttered bowl and let rise or double in size for about 2-3 hours. Punch down and form into an 8 inch round cake pan. Let rise again 1-2 hours. Bake 35-40 minutes at 350. Brush with butter. Enjoy!
