Hooray! I finally found a dill bread that works. I've been absolutely snake-bit with dill bread recipes. Even this one gave me trouble; the first time I made it, the aroma was so great, I peeked into my bread machine to look at it and found - a sizzling pile of ingredients! SOMEONE had forgotten to put the paddles in her bread maker! But finally, I put the machine together in the right way, and made this wonderful bread. I used butter instead of margarine; I had used up all my cottage cheese with my first mistake, so I subbed yogurt for the cheese and it seemed to work very well. I also used dill weed instead of seed, because that is what I had. This is a great bread for tuna sandwiches!!
I have made this recipe dozens of times. I always double or triple the dill. I've added wheat germ or flax seed. I've used white, whole wheat, white whole wheat flour in any combination. This bread turns out great no matter what I do to it! I've also used buttermilk and crumbled feta when I didn't have cottage cheese. It is endlessly variable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
This is a great recipe! My wife and I were given a used bread maker and looked for a simple recipe to try.... I found it!! If any bread survives the onslaught of family, I take it to work since my shop co-workers also love it, and cannot believe it has, of all things, cottage cheese. This bread makes fantastic toast also. I would give it 6 stars if I could!
