Susan and I have been planning the menu over the phone.
We talked about how Thanksgiving dinners were when we were growing up.
Lots and lots of food. Many side dishes, salads, and desserts.
Our Grandma's, Minnie and Ruby, always seemed to be in competition to bring the biggest and best bowls full of the latest "new" recipes they had discovered.
Mother also liked to prepare great dishes, desserts, and bread.
Sometime in the 70s Mother introduced a new bread to the Thanksgiving feast.
Ever since then it has became a standard for holiday meals.
I have carried on the tradition.
Have you ever tried Dilly Bread?
You must try it!
Here is the recipe. . .
Picture source Google
1 package yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup cottage cheese heated to lukewarm
(I do this in the microwave.)
2 T. sugar
1 instant minced onion
3 T. butter
2 tsp. dill seed
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. soda
2 1/4 cups flour
Soften yeast in water.
Combine in mixing bowl
cottage cheese, sugar, onion, butter, dill seed, salt, soda, beaten egg an softened yeast.
Add flour to form a stiff dough, beating well after each addition.
Cover and let rise in warm place until light and doubles in size, 50 to 60 minutes
Knead down dough and turn into well greased 2 1/2 qt. round or oval casserole.
Let rise in warm place for about 40 minutes.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes until brown
(crust will be dark brown).
Brush with butter.
The combination of dill & cottage cheese really make this delicious.
Hope you'll try it for your Thanksgiving meal.
* Note *
You can also make this in a bread maker.
Just dump everything in.
If you want to bakc it in a casserole dish just mix it on dough setting.
