    1      tablespoon    Sugar
                         egg size used)

      2/3  cup           Butter -- melted
    1      cup           Herman Sourdough Starter
    3      tablespoons   To 6 Fresh Dill Weed -- chop'd
      1/4  cup           Butter
                         OR ANY other chopped fresh
    2                    Eggs -- beaten in
                         Herb of your choice
    1 1/2  teaspoons     Salt -- to 2 ts
 
 Mix first 3 ingred. in sm. bowl. Stir. Set aside. Mix next 4 ingred. in a lg.
mixing bowl. Beat well and add yeast mixture. Stir in 2 1/2 to 3 c flour by
hand. Add more flour if the dough seems too soft for kneading.
 Knead 8-10 min.  Set time. Use part of the flour measurement for the kneading. 
Grease bowl. Turn dough over in bowl to grease all sides. Cover with floured
plastic wrap. Place in warm draft free spot to rise until double.  Punch dough
down.  Cover dough and allow to rest 10 min. On floured board, roll dough out
to 1/2 to 2/3 thickness. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into 1
1/2 to 2 uneven squares. Dip in melted butter. Roll in fresh chopped herb
until lightly coated---according to your own taste. Toss into greased monkey
bread pot or a solid bottom tube pan.
 Uneven, haphazzard arrangement of dough squares makes for a more interesting
monkey bread design. Drizzle leftover melted butter over top.
 Cover and allow to rise until double. Very lightly sprinkle with leftover
herbs. Bake at 350 for 35-40 min. til toothpick inserted into center comes out
clean when done. Sounds hollow when tapped. Serve warm. Carefully remove to
serving plate.	From: Herman Sourdough Herald. Cover
