Happy Leap Day! And.. Freshly-Baked Green Onion Bread

Yes, the title is a little random.. but isn't that what leap day is all about? Every four years, Westerners take all the extra minutes and hours that have accumulated, and stash it all together into one extra day. One extra day... one free day of rent! One extra day you have to go to work! (I guess it all evens out in the end.)

It was the same with this bread. I wanted to try the no-knead bread that everyone has been trying out. But instead of making the bread from the original no-knead recipe, by Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery (here), I decided to toss in some diced green onions.

Adding a stalk of diced green onions to the dry ingredients

Waiting for the dough to rise

So beautiful! I baked it in my oval 3.5 qt Le Creuset dutch oven

Light, airy crumb... Crisp, crunchy exterior

Try adding some green onion to your no-knead next time. Mashed garlic, sesame seeds... anything random will do. Or lump them all together!

Happy Leap Day!


  1. I didn't even notice your new post! Love how beautiful that bread looks. How did it taste? Can you detect the green onion in it? Yum, I would totally put in whole heads of garlic. Mmm.

  2. It was good! The green onion could have been a lot more pronounced. I think I will try adding the green onion right before baking instead next time. Yum.. roasted garlic would be amazing!
