Dilly Bread Recipe This is good !


I make this all the time . The first time I made it , I lied , ok , I am a brat !
 If I didn't lie , no one would try it here . So all you cottage cheese haters , I proved this is good with my family , as they ate it up .
Then I told them what they ate ! LOL !
Really good Recipe :

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water

1 cup cottage cheese
1 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons dill seed
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon margarine, melted
1 teaspoon kosher salt
DIRECTIONS:

Crock~pot Potato Soup Today


Yes , that crock~pot I so love ! Sure makes life easy !
My recipe :
6 medium potatoes , peeled and cubed
about 1/3 cup diced celery
about 1/3 cup diced onion
2 cups cubed ham
1 1/2 cups American cheese grated or cubed
1 Tablespoon minced garlic from the jar
2 cups water to start the process
Heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
I mix everything together , but , the cheese and heavy cream , in my crockpot .
Let cook till your potatoes are cooked through , then add your heavy cream and cheese . Let cook another 15 min.
Serve hot with a loaf of homemade cheese bread .
Recipe below :

Cheddar Cheese Bread

  • 3 cups flour
  • tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces of cheddar cheese, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
Heat oven to 350.   Generously grease a 9×5 loaf pan with oil. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper.  Carefully stir in cheese cubes until cheese is well coated.  In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients.  Fold the milk mixture into the flour/cheese mixture.  Stir just until combined, do not over stir.  The mixture will be thick.  Pour/spread into greased loaf pan.  Bake for 45-50 minutes.  Let cool 10 minutes and then remove from pan.  Let cool one hour before slicing and serving.
