  1. Soften yeast in warm water; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Mix cottage cheese, sugar, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl. Add dill seed, dried onion, egg, and yeast mixture. Mix well. Gradually add flour, about 1/4 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. If dough seems too sticky, add another tablespoon or 2 of flour.
  3. Cover bowl with a clean cotton kitchen towel and place in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously butter a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish.
  5. Gently stir dough to release bubbles. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven; brush top with butter and sprinkle on a pinch of salt. Let bread cool 5 minutes before transferring from the baking dish to a cooling rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of stirring the dough with a spoon, I grease my hands and manually work the flour into the dough (Step 2).

It’s amazing that my 92 year old mother has been making this exact bread since I was a little girl (about 50+ years)! I have made it several times in the past. I love it! Angie must be arou...

I didn't make any changes and it was delicious and very attractive. Thanks for the recipe!

Didn't rise quite as much as I expected but good flavor and texture. I'll make it again.

I followed the recipe as written, one of the easiest and tasty yeast breads I have made. My loaf was high and rounded, even prettier than the picture in the magazine.

This recipe has been around for many years and is my favorite "go to" when desiring to serve a specialty bread for family and friends. It's that marriage of Dill and Onion that create an irre...

This is just like my Grandma Kyes' recipe. I love this bread. My husband even likes it with hamburgers.

Turned out perfect!
