This is a nice, soft bread. I had shaped mine into rolls, and it was a bit too soft for that - they spread a little more than I wanted, so that I would recommend baking in a loaf pan or casserole. The cottage cheese will keep this bread moist. I would reduce the salt to 1 tsp, as cottage cheese has a fair amount of sodium in it. If you don't like or don't have dill, I think that rosemary or thyme would work well with the onion flavor.
I really liked this bread. It was very soft and different from your usual breads. I do not have a bread machine, so I used my Kitchenaid with the dough hook and it did the trick. My bread did not rise quite as much as I had hoped, but I think my kitchen was very cold that day. The flavor is what really makes this bread unique. I will be making this again, I think I'd like to try it as rolls too. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Tag - Thanks! :)
