I made some Dilly Casserole Bread this morning and my house smells so good!! This recipe was a Pillsbury Bake-off winner in 1960..It was made and entered by Leona Schnuelle from Crab Orchard, Nebraska and she won $25,000!!! My Gramma was the one that first made this in our family. My husband hated cottage cheese but this was one of his favorite breads..we didn't tell him it had cottage cheese in it, until after he tried and like it. :-)
(2) 1 pkg. yeast (4 t.) 2 t. dill seed
(1/2) 1/4 cup warm water (2 t.) 1 t. salt
(2 C.) 1 cup creamed cottage cheese (1/2 t.) 1/4 t. baking soda
(4 T.) 2 T. sugar (2) 1 egg
(2 T.) 1 T. instant minced onion (5 C.) 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups of flour (I use bread flour)
(2 T.) 1 T. butter (the ingredients in parentheses is for a double batch)
Dissolve yeast in water. Heat cottage cheese to lukewarm. Combine sugar, onion, butter, dill seed, salt, baking soda and egg in a bowl with cheese and yeast mixture. Add flour to form stiff dough. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk. Stir down dough. Turn into well greased 1 1/2 qt. casserole or 8 inch round pan. Let rise 30 - 40 minutes or until light. Bake in 350 degree oven 40-50 minutes. Brush with butter and sprinkle with salt. Makes 1 loaf. (As you can see by the pictures, I make buns, and I cook each pan 10 minutes and then I switch around the pans on the oven grates and cook another 10 minutes. 20 minutes total for the buns. Doubled recipe makes about 22-24 buns)
Sew until next time, have a great day and try making some Dilly Bread!!!!
