Dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let it sit for 10 minutes until the foam on top is doubled in size.
Heat the cottage cheese in a small pan to lukewarm.
Combine the cottage cheese and the yeast mixture together.
Add the remaining ingredients until combined.
Butter a large bowl and place the dill bread dough. Roll the dough around the bowl to butter it.
Place a dish towel over the bowl and set it in a warm place (microwave works great). Let the dough rise for about one hour or until it is doubled in size.
Press the dough down and shape it into either one regular loaf size or three mini loaves.
Place the shaped dough into the loaf pan(s). And again set them in a warm place, cover them with a dish towel and let them rise for another hour or until doubled in size.
While the dough is rising for the second time preheat the oven to 350°F.
Bake the regular sized loaf for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Bake the mini loaves for 25-30 minutes.
Take out of the oven and let sit for no longer than 5 minutes in the pan(s). Remove the bread from the pan(s) and set them on a wire cooling rack.
Brush lots of butter on the top and sides of the loaves. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
