    Classic bread sauce

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus infusing
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1 small onion, halved
    6 cloves
    3 garlic cloves, bashed
    12 black peppercorns
    2 fresh bay leaves
    500ml milk
    Pinch freshly grated nutmeg, plus extra to serve
    120g soft white breadcrumbs


    1. Put all the ingredients except the breadcrumbs in a medium pan over a medium heat, until the milk is steaming and bubbles start forming around the edge. Remove from the heat, cool a little, cover and set aside to infuse for 2 hours in the fridge.

    2. Strain the milk mixture into a jug, then pour the infused milk back into the pan. Stir in the breadcrumbs and put over a medium heat. Cook gently, stirring, until warmed through and thickened slightly (about 2-3 minutes). Season and serve with a little more nutmeg on top.
