dilled wheat bread

Things have been all aflurry (yes, I totally just made that word up) at our house as of late.  On those busy weeknights when we need a quick dinner but don’t want to (would not ever, in fact) resort to the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant, we opt for sandwiches.  This is my go-to recipe for a tasty, wholesome loaf of bread with a ton of flavor.  Most recently, we opted for spinach artichoke grilled cheese sandwiches and they were divine.  The fact that this is a bread machine recipe makes it all the simpler to make.  Enjoy!

Dilled wheat bread {bread machine recipe}


  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dill
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast


  1. Combine cottage cheese, water and butter in small saucepan and heat until just warm (120 degrees). Once warm, add mixture to bread machine pan.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to bread machine pan in order listed, being careful to sprinkle sugar around perimeter of bread machine pan on top of flour. Prior to adding yeast, form a shallow well in the center of the flour (but don't go all the way down to liquid) and pour yeast into the well.
  3. Program your bread machine for the dough setting and start it.
  4. Once the dough is complete, remove from the bread pan and shape into a loaf. Place in a well-greased loaf pan. Place it in a warm, dark place and allow it to rise for an hour. Tip: I allow my dough to rise in a closed oven with a bowl of hot water.
  5. Brush top of loaf with egg white and sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Bake at 350 for twenty-five minutes or until golden brown.
