I've used dill in breads and just love the flavor, but one day while preparing hamburgers, I wondered if I could use actual pickles. Here is my creation use dill pickle juice for half of the water for the deluxe version. Enjoy!

This turned out perfectly! I don’t have a bread maker. Here are some tips. - Proof yeast w/ 1 tsp sugar in 1/2 cup warm water 10 min. Add pickles, butter, onion, parsley, dill. Omit salt. Add 1/2 cup pickle juice. Stir in 2 cups flour to form a soft dough. Knead in enough flour to make a smooth, elastic dough (2 3/4 cup, 12 minutes for me). Let rise in greased bowl 1 hr or until double. Punch down dough, form loaf in greased pan, let rise 30 min. Bake at 375F for 40 min, covering with foil after 1st 15min. Wonderful, dill-y bread. Thanks! Read More

This bread didn't rise for me and the bread ended up being heavy. I had added sugar to help the yeast along but this didn't seem to work. I thought maybe it would be better to add chopped pickles and dill pickle juice to my regular white bread recipe for bread machines. Read More

This is a fantastic bread for pickle lovers. The second time I made it, I added a bit more diced pickle and upped the pickle juice-to-water ratio to 3:1, then reduced the salt by 1/4 tsp. This is the perfect bread for roast beef, tuna salad, chicken salad, and innumerable other sandwiches. Read More

My wife loved this bread. Great bread for sandwiches. I chose to set my crust to a darker setting for a richer crust. For the kids I chose to use onion powder instead of chopped onions. Both came out great. Read More

Check bread during kneading cycle I had to add more flour. Makes the best sandwiches ever. It has been 5 years now that I have made this. So this is an add on. Make sure the juice and the pickles are at room temp. I add extra dill weed. Yes for 5 years I have been making this bread and love it. I use the dough cycle only. Thank you Tony Read More

This is the BEST bread I have ever made in a machine and I've worn out 3 machines! Very light and tasty. I grated my pickle Clausen's Kosher Dills and used distilled water. Read More

This recipe seemed to be an excellent idea but it didn't turn out for me. The bread didn't rise at all...not even a little bit and I followed the recipe exactly. My yeast was good I have used it sucessfully recently on other recipes. I did wonder why there was no sugar in the recipe...I thought yeast needs sugar to act. Also I am told salt keeps the yeast in check so the extra salt in the pickle juice may have done something also. This recipe smelled wonderful as it baked I was sorry it didn't turn out. I threw the bread away. Anyone have any suggestions to save this recipe? Had it risen it would have been wonderful. Thanks! Heather Read More

The pickle taste wasn't as distinctive as I had hoped - I even used pickle juice for the water. Read More

Good recipe but needed adjustments-added sugar and some gluten flour (for the 1/8 c flour) for a really good bread. Also try adding 1/2 finely chopped onion Read More
