I was wondering, if you miss an ingredient while making bread in your bread maker; when it just starts to knead, can you add a ingredient that you missed? Thanks.

You learn to bake by making mistakes. Sprinkle the ingredient in and try it. It may be ok.
You can add ingredients as long as the machine is still kneading the dough.
Once it stops for the rising process, it's too late.
Yes, you can. You can even take the dough out of the machine and knead the missed ingredient in yourself, using a bowl, then put the lot back into the bread machine. Don't unplug the machine in the meantime though. Just leave it running.
The only time you're absolutely too late to do anything, is when the bread machine has started rising for the last cycle, just before the baking cycle starts. Good luck and try experimenting, you'll end up with the most fantastic breads!
Not if it is something that should have been sifted with the flour, or anything that would need to be evenly dispersed in the bread. I would think only if it were a solid like nuts or oatmeal.
