Irresistible Homemade Dill Rolls

Serves: Makes 12


  • 1 (0.25-ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (105° to 110°)
  • 2 2⁄3 cups bread flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup small-curd whole milk cottage cheese
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Garnish: melted butter, sea salt

FIRST In a small bowl, stir together yeast and 1⁄4 cup warm water. Let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.

NEXT In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine flour, egg, cottage cheese, dill, sugar, butter, salt, onion powder, baking soda, and pepper. Add yeast mixture and beat at medium speed until a dough forms. Reduce mixer speed to low, and beat until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

NEXT Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°) until doubled in size, about 1 ½ hours.

NEXT Lightly spray a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray. Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Roll each piece into a ball; place in prepared skillet. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°) until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

NEXT Preheat oven to 325°. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

LAST Brush rolls with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
