Chicken and mozzarella sandwhich on dill bread
This could possibly be our most favourite bread recipe of all time. After my husband comes home from being away, I always get out my breadmaker and make it for him. We have been eating this bread for a long, long time and I was shocked to realize from writing about it on my Facebook page that I have not posted about it. How could that be?! I had to remedy this situation immediately.
Once again, this recipe comes from the genius yet out of print cookbook: Canada’s Best Bread Machine Baking Recipes. I love this recipe because it is low in fat and yet absolutely moist and delicious.
Yummy Yogurt Dill Loaf (2 lb)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 1/4 cup low-fat yogurt
3 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour
3 tbsp minced dried onion
1 tbsp dried dill
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
Fill the loaf pan with the ingredients in the order shown in the recipe, ending with the dried herbs and yeast on top. Select the “Basic” cycle and I also personally choose the light setting for the crust. Hit start.
Remember to always check how wet or dry the dough is while it is kneading. Throughout the year, humidity changes, sometimes you will need to add a little water. In this case I had to add a little extra flour but I still wanted the dough to be moist and come together like you see above.
If you enjoy savory bread, you will love this loaf! It is so fantastic with just a little bit of butter, it also makes amazing sandwiches, grilled bread, garlic bread and…
… cheesy bread too. This is the bread that convinced me that breadmakers are miracle workers in the kitchen. I got it as an engagement present from my dad and his wife when I knew nothing about baking and it really changed our lives. Until it got stolen in Vancouver. Yes, someone stole my breadmaker, bastards. I am so glad that I invested in another one to bring back old memories, old flavours from our past. It helps make us feel at home.
We really enjoyed the Brown Maritime Bread you posted, so I will be trying this one next week. Thank You,
I’m going to put a batch on today, just because I have left over chowder & I ate all the biscuits.
This should be interesting a 2 pound loaf in a 1 1/2 pound breadmaker. Can you spell pop top !!! more later.

I’m so glad you liked it Rita, hopefully you will like this one too. Wayne, I do have measurements for smaller breadmakers. Hopefully that one will turn out OK, if not, let me know OK?
Recently I checked ‘300 best Canadian Bread Machine recipes’ out of the library. It is written by the same authors as the book Suzie refers to. The introduction advises that their first two books (Canada’s Best Brd Mach Bkg Recipes’ and ‘More of Canada’s Best Brd Mach Bkg Recipes’) were combined into ‘250 Best Cdn Brd Mach Bkg Recipes’. So don’t despair, I believe this book is still available. But if you are going to buy a recipe book, why not get the one with 300 recipes? It is up to date (2010) and even has a chapter on loaves up to 3 lbs. (the 2 recipes Suzie has printed are in this new book)
It worked perfectly. Stopped just before it started pushing on the lid. Of course I had to try a slice, since the aroma was driving me nuts for 3 hours. Delicious. Will make some tasty fine sandwiches and a great bread for the chowder.

Scooter, that is incredibly exciting! I should have known those recipes would end up in a special book like that. I am so happy they are still publishing the recipes because they are so good. I might have to buy that one because I want the other recipes too. Wonderful!
Wayne, that bread’s aroma while it is baking is crazy delicious isn’t it? It’s almost cruel to make you wait all those hours. I am glad to hear it worked out well and you loved it, makes me so happy. Oh yes, perfect with that fantastic chowder you made, going to have to try that!
