Dill Bread

1 pkg yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup sour cream (room temp.)
1 egg beaten
2 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. instant minced onion
1 Tbs. butter, softened
2 tsp. dill
1/4 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 3/4 to 3 cups flour

Desolve yeast in warm water.  Mix sour cream, egg, sugar,minced onion, and soft butter together. Mix in yeast mixture. Add 2 cups flour, dill, soda, and salt, mix well.  Continue adding flour and mixing until you have a soft dough.  Remove from bowl and knead on a floured board.  knead for around 5 to 8 minutes.  lightly oil the bowl and return the dough to it, cover and let rise until double in size.  Punch down and let rise until double again.  Knead the dough lightly and divide in half, cover and let rest 5 minutes.Turn on the oven to 350. Form into a round loaf, place on greased baking sheet, cover and let rise till double in size.  Bake in preheated oven 25-35 minutes or until the bread is a golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.  Remove from oven place on a wire cooling rack.
Brush with melted butter and cool.

This recipe can also be used in a bread machine.  Put the yeast on the bottom of the mixing container in your bread machine.  Add dry ingredients.  Mix together the wet ingredients and pour into the machine.  Turn the machine on to the manual setting and let the dough mix.  I prefer removing the dough after the second rising (or the end of the manual setting) and not letting it bake in the machine.  Divide in half and and place on oiled baking sheet, cover and let rise, then follow the baking instructions above.
