Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with nonstick spray.

Heat cottage cheese and water in microwave to lukewarm.

Stir in egg, sugar, dill, yeast, onion, butter, salt, pepper, and baking soda.

Stir 2 cups flour into yeast mixture until incorporated, adding more as needed until dough can be handled (dough will be soft).

Divide dough into 8 pieces, form each into a smooth ball, then place in prepared skillet, pinched sides down. Cover skillet loosely with plastic wrap; let rise 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350° with rack in center position.

Bake bread until golden brown, 2530 minutes; rest 15 minutes before serving.


Less flour means a stickier dough, yet lighter roll, so add just enough flour so the dough isn’t sticky


Using a bench knife makes quick work of cutting the dough into portions, and cleaning up.


To form each portion of dough into a smooth ball, use your fingers to gently stretch the dough and pinch it on the underside, smoothing the top in the process.
