Dill Onion Bread

The two best breads I’ve ever had include my mom’s homemade pita bread and this dill bread. I got this recipe from a friend and my weekend pretty much consisted of eating an entire loaf of this in between painting furniture. I’m not proud of it, but once you try this I assure you you’ll do the same because

This bread is eat it after you’ve brushed and flossed good.
This bread is crumbs in your bed good.
This bread is eat it standing up in the kitchen good.

{I did all of the above}

We used my friend’s retro bread maker to make this bread but I am sure the results will be exactly the same if you follow these directions. My friend got this recipe from the book that came with the bread maker. #oldschool. If you have a bread maker, simply combine and mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and then place in bread maker and let it do the work for you for about four hours. 


What you need:

15/16 cup warm water (I rolled my eyes at this measurement, but my friend was super hyper about making sure we followed the exact measurements. This is basically a little less than a cup).
1 egg
3 15/16 (basically close to 4 cups) bread flour
1 1/4 cup cottage cheese
2 tablespoon dill seed
2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/3 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoon dry yeast (close to two packets)
1 medium onion chopped
9 inch loaf pan


What you need to do:

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl except for water and yeast.
In a separate bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water to activate the yeast. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
Pour water and yeast mixture over the rest of the ingredients.
Knead by hand or if using a Kitchenaid use the dough / kneading hook attachment.
Knead until soft and not sticky. If it’s too sticky add a small amount of flour.
Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a towel, covered with plastic wrap, and set in a warm area and let bread rise for about an hour.
Once the bread has doubled in size, punch it down and shape it to a fit the loaf pan
Place in well oiled loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap and a towel. Let bread rise for another hour or until it’s doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350
Remove plastic wrap from loaf pan and bake for about 50 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy the best bread ever!
