Cottage Cheese & Pepper Bread Recipe

Pamela Lanier's Link:


1 lb cottage cheese, small curd

2 eggs

2 teaspoons ground black pepper, the coarser table grind is best

1 Tablespoon melted butter

2 Tablespoons chopped chives or scallion tops

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 package yeast

4 cups bread flour


Mix the cottage cheese, butter, eggs, pepper, chives, water, salt, sugar, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Add the yeast and flour. Mix and knead the dough until elastic. This dough tends to be a bit sticky. Let the dough rest about 5 minutes and knead again, adding only enough flour so you can handle the dough. Place in a greased, covered bowl and let rise until double. Punch down and divide into 2 loaves or make 2 dozen rolls. Allow the bread to double again and bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until the loaves sound hollow when tapped, or bake 25 minutes for rolls. Remove from pan and cool on rack. This bread is very difficult to cut when warm.
