Cheese Bread: Our New Favorite

By accident, we discovered this most delicious bread – first on some hunting website, and then found similar recipes on actual cooking websites as well.  Here is our version:


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup small curd cottage cheese (I like the 4% variety)
  • 2 tablespoons butter – cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 and 1/4 cup of bread flour
  • 2 and 1/4 teaspoons of bread machine yeast (or dry yeast for regular baking)

Place ingredients in bread machine, use “dough” cycle.  When done, punch down, knead enough to get air bubbles out (add some more flour if dough is too sticky).  Place in greased loaf pan and let rise a bit more.  Preheat oven to 375 degree F.  Bake bread for 25 minutes, until top is lightly browned.  Remove from oven and brush top with melted butter to keep the crust soft.
