No-Knead bread additions and toast??

I was wondering how many of you added something to your no-knead bread and what the results were. I added sesame seeds-very subtle when bread was fresh,(mixture of 1/2 organic wheat flour to 1/2 a.p. flour) but flavor really came thru when I toasted the bread this morning. The toast, btw was terrific. Any favs so far????

  1. Did you add the sesame seeds straight to the dry ingredients, and how much did you add?

      Yes, I added them striaght to the dry ingredients and about 2 T., but could have added more. Next time I will toast the seeds, but this time I was afraid they would burn with the baking at such a high temp.

    2. I am going to experiment with homemade raisins and cured olives tonight. I will let you know what happens.

        Please do, those are 2 ing. I'd like to try also. I love olive bread and I may also try asiago. Wonder if the high temp would burn the cheese?

      2. There is also a thread about "variations" on the no-knead bread. I'll be waiting to hear how the olives and raisins do. If you go to a blog called The Wednesday Chef, there is a comment by someone who added cheese and so forth.
