Here is another delicious recipe using cottage cheese as one of the ingredients. If you make homemade bread, and are looking for a recipe with a little “cottage cheese” twist, then this is the perfect recipe for you! This bread is great served warm right from the oven, with a slab of melted butter placed upon it. Enjoy!
Bake time: 40 minutes
Prep time: 150 minutes
Yield: 2 loaves of bread
In a large bowl, mix the water and yeast. Add the cottage cheese, eggs, olive oil, sugar, salt, shallots (or chives), and the dill weed. Stir until mixed. Add 3 cups of bread flour and mix well. Slowly add in the remaining 2 ½ cups of bread flour, working it in, until you have a dough that is soft and smooth to the touch. Place the dough into a medium greased bowl. Turn the dough over after it has been placed in the greased bowl so that the top of the dough is lightly greased. Cover the bowl with a clean dish cloth and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour, until it is double in size.
Punch down the dough on a lightly floured board and knead for 4 minutes until the bubbles are worked out of the bread. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Form the dough into a loaf shape and place the loaf into a greased 8 x 4 inch bread pan that has been dusted with cornmeal (optional). Cover the bread pans and let them rise in a warm place for 45 minutes until the dough is double in size.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for 40 minutes until the crust is medium brown. Remove the loaves from the bread pans and let them cool on a wire rack. Serve warm and enjoy!
