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!
