Red Star Yeast – Batterway Dill Rolls

Hubby and I are planning some unique future grilling recipes, and that makes me sooooooo excited!!  Here are some of our grilling treats we have made on our Grilling Pinterest Board.  We had a fun phone conversation about what we should make.  Lunch was already over, but with that fun conversation with my grill chef….I was hungry all over again!  Between the bread I have been making, and the grilling my hubby loves to make….life is pretty delicious in our world!

Here is some more Red Star Yeast love!!  These dill rolls required some patience, and a lot of love to make.  To be honest, making yeast bread is not easy, but it is fun to create!  Most yeast bread recipes require waiting in your day.  So plan to watch movies, or read a book, and just relax on your bread making days!

Red Star Yeast Batterway Dill Rolls

If you didn’t know already, I should share my love for Red Star Yeast.  Whichever Red Star Yeast recipe you choose to make, it will for sure knock your socks off!  The recipes are always full of flavor, and I guarantee will make you dance after every bite!

Here are a few Red Star Yeast recipes I have made – Homemade New York Style Bagels, Kale Chips, Roasted Garlic, Parmesan Swirl Egg Bread, Butternut Squash Pizza Dough, Chocolate Coffee Pull-Apart Bread, and Homemade Pizza Dough.  Then last month I made a special treat for my amazing hubby, delicious Peanut Butter Batter Buns.  AND just wait till next month, I will be making a recipe I have had on my to-do list for awhile!

Red Star Yeast Batterway Dill Rolls

Batterway Dill Rolls
Save RecipeSave Recipe


2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp instant minced onions
2 tsp dill seeds
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1 cup cottage cheese, drained
1/2 cup water
4 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 egg
Butter, soft
Coarse salt


Have water and cottage cheese at 110°-115°F and all other ingredients at room temperature.

Measure the first 7 ingredients into a bowl. Blend with fork or pastry blender. Set aside. Measure the water into a mixing bowl; add the yeast. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes; stir. Add the egg. Pour yeast mixture into the flour-mixture. Beat until thoroughly blended. Cover. Let rise in warm place until doubled...about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, grease 24 2-inch muffin cups.

Beat down raised batter in about 25 strokes. This is a thick, somewhat sticky batter. Spoon into muffin cups, filling 1/2 full. Tap pans on table to settle the batter. Let rise until batter reaches tops of cups...20 to 30 minutes. Bake 15 to 20 minutes in preheated 350°F oven. Remove from pans and cool on rack. Brush with soft butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.

You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise faster - about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast OR 3/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe. Visit our Lessons in Yeast & Baking for more information.

This recipe makes 24 medium rolls.


If you need a little help in your bread making adventure, here is a great link from Red Star Yeast on lessons in yeast and baking!  Really, bread making can be a great way to relieve some energy, with seven to ten minutes of kneading….just sayin’!

In my pictures you can get a glimpse of my antique bread paddle, and an antique rolling pin.  Hubby and I have been having fun lately antiquing.  The kitchen toys I have found are so amazing, and perfect for food photography props!

    Terra, you really know how get my attention. These rolls look and sound delicious. I'm thinking slathered in butter will work just fine for me!

    These look amazing. But it looks like they have dill leaves too? I don't see any seeds in the photos, just chopped up leaves. Am I missing something? I have some gigantic dill growing in my garden and I am always looking for ways to use it. This recipe looks SO good!!!
    • Good morning Emily! I will update the recipe tonight. It is Red Star Yeast's recipe, so did not change it. But yes, I did use dill leaves instead. A perfect recipe to use some that you have grown! Thank you for stopping by, Hugs, Terra

        How much fresh dill did you use, did you still use he seeds, or just replace with the fresh?
  • Tutti Dolci
    I love dill, these rolls look incredible!
  • Hotly Spiced
    There's a lovely combination of ingredients in these rolls that look a lot like savoury muffins. I can just imagine these would be incredible served straight out of the oven with some lovely butter xx
  • Angie
    These savoury bread rolls look scrumptious, Terra.
  • Was surprised to see the cottage cheese as an ingredients. Must make these some very moist rolls. I could probably eat that whole batch in one sitting. :)

    Nice light on the top and bottom pictures! And a great sounding roll. I love the flavor of dill, and we have tons of it at the moment. We only have instant yeast on hand, but I can adjust quantities so that'll work. ;-) Good stuff - thanks.
    oh Terra these batter way dill rolls look to die for. I love anything savory and these are mouthwatering. Love that you used the muffin tins.

    What gorgeous dill rolls, I want to devour them! I love the flavour :D Cheers CCU
  • I just realized that I pinned these rolls but didn't comment! My bad. I had no idea what a batterway roll was. They look terrific and I've got a heap of dill growing. Mine!
