Herb Bread Recipe

This bread is great; it’s a yeast bread, so it tastes very authentic, but it’s also way easier than most other yeast breads because it requires no kneading, punching, or any of that other complex stuff. It is a very light, flavorful and soft bread that goes wonderfully with any dinner!

Herb Bread Recipe:

(Makes about 8 servings)

2 1/4 tsp. (1 pkg.)  dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water

1 tsp. white sugar

1 cup warm cottage cheese

1 egg, beaten

2 Tbsp. white sugar

1 Tbsp. onion, minced

1 Tbsp. melted butter

2 tsp. Dill seed

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. Dill weed

1/4 tsp. baking soda

2 1/4 cups flour

Light glaze:

2 Tbsp. butter

1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to it’s lowest possible temperature and grease an 8 inch, round baking pan (it should be about 3 inches deep).

2. Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp. white sugar in warm water. Let stand for 10 minutes.

3. Combine warm cottage cheese, egg, 2 Tbsp. white sugar, onion, butter, dill seed, salt, dill weed, baking soda, and yeast mixture, stiring until well blended. Stir in flour until moist. Beat well. ( the dough will probably look a little weird due to the cottage cheese and dill.)

4. Dump the dough into the baking pan and place it in the oven to let it rise for 1 hour. Then, leaving the bread in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake it for about 10-20 minutes or until the top is golden. I will let you know, however, that the baking times varies greatly each time I make this recipe… and you have to be careful not to let it burn because it will go from looking under-baked one minute to “Whoa! Get the bread out of the oven!!!” the next.

5. Do not remove the loaf from the pan. For the glaze, brush 2 Tbsp. butter over the top of the hot loaf. Then sprinkle it with 1/4 tsp. salt.

6. Serve it and love it!
