Dijon Rye Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

For some reason the idea of Dijon mustard and rye bread just seem to go together.  This is a particularly hearty rye made with cottage cheese, butter and an egg with a blend of both yeast and baking soda.  Mustard seeds in the dough and as a topping add to the overall dill flavor.

 1 teaspoon of sugar
 1 teaspoon of salt
 ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
 2 ¼ teaspoons of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast
 ¼ cup of water 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 43 degrees Celsius
 1 tablespoon of melted butter
 ¼ cup of onion coarsely grated
 1 cup of room temperature cottage cheese
 1 room temperature egg
 2 cups of rye flour
 ½ cup of bread flour
 2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard + 1 tablespoon for glaze
 1 tablespoon of mustard seed + two tablespoons of mustard seed for topping

Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan but reserve a tablespoon of Dijon and two tablespoons of mustard seeds for topping and select the whole wheat setting for a 1-pound loaf and dark crust.


When the kneading cycle is complete, brush the top of the loaf with 1 tablespoon of Dijon and sprinkle on the remaining dill seeds and minced dill fronds.


Cool for 10 minutes, slice and serve.
