Traditional Bread Sauce

  • Cooking Method: Braising
  • Difficulty: easy

500ml milk
50 gm butter
1 onion, chopped roughly
6-8 whole cloves
6 peppercorns
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1-2 bay leaves
3 thyme sprigs, plus a few to garnish

2 slices of white bread, crumbed (or whatever you have, stale is best)
4 Tbsp single cream or mascarpone
Pinch nutmeg, freshly grated

Take a step back in time with this wonderful dish!

Simmer the milk, butter, onion, cloves, peppercorns, garlic and herbs in a pan for at least 20 mins until the onion is soft.
Strain and return just the liquid to the pan.

Crumb the bread by hand to retain some texture.
Add the crumbed bread and simmer for 3-4 mins.

Take off the heat and stir in the cream or mascarpone.
Add nutmeg, season generously with salt and pepper.
Garnish with thyme sprigs and serve with your roast dinner.

This fragrant sauce is an ideal accompaniment for any roast meal.
It can be made up to 3 days in advance and heated up on the hob or microwave on Medium for 3 mins.
