Combine the cottage cheese, sugar, onion, butter, dill seed, salt, soda, egg and yeast. Mix well. Add 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 cups flour to form a stiff dough, beating well after each additon. Cover and let rise until light and doubled (about 50-60 minutes). I sit my bread dough on an old heating pad, temp. at low. It rises beautifully.
Stir down dough and turn into well greased 8" round casserole (1 1/2 qt). Let rise until light - another 30-40 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown. Brush with butter and sprinkle lightly with salt.
