Cottage Dill Rolls using a Bread Machine.
I decided to make some homemade rolls for tonight’s dinner using the dough cycle of my trusty Betty Crocker bread machine. I love that machine….even if it has tried to jump from the counter once, or twice.
I got the basic recipe from Allrecipes: Cottage Cheese Bread 1
Here are the ingredients:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
I added a tablespoon of dill to the mix. I have done fresh dill weed and jarred dill weed, and both turned out the same. After the dough cycle was completed (about 1.5 hours), I dropped the dough onto a floured surface.
Pinch off about nine dough balls.
Very easy….no kneading, just pinch and go.
I let the dough balls rise with a tea towel draped on top of them for 40 minutes. I used the silicone Silpat beneath them to keep them from sticking.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
After they rose, I did an egg-white wash (one egg white with a tablespoon of water added.) I decided to sprinkle sea salt and sesame seeds atop the egg-washed dough balls. Sesame seeds are so cute.
Now, bake the little buns for about 15 minutes at 350, until golden brown. I often use my sense of smell when making bread. If you don’t smell the bread, chances are it is not ready!
Here they are:
For dinner, we made Pesto Turkey Burgers which were amazingly delicious and highly recommended. Click on the hyperlink above for the burger recipe. I prepped the rolls and the burgers ahead, so when dinnertime came around, I slapped the burgers on the Foreman grill for a few minutes and then plated them.
The cottage dill rolls made the burger perfect!
Happy bun making!
