Bread Sauce

This makes Christmas lunch special. We love this almost as much as the turkey! Make ahead of time and just reheat on the big day!


1 pint whole milk


8-10 cloves

8-10 peppercorns

1 bay leaf

200g white breadcrumbs

50g butter

50ml double cream

1 teaspoon nutmeg

How to make bread sauce

  1. Put the peeled onion in a pan with the milk, cloves, nutmeg, peppercorns and bay leaf gently heat until it just comes to a boil.

  2. Turn off the heat and leave for 2 hours.

  3. Sieve the milk to remove the onion and spices, put the milk back into the pan with the breadcrumbs, butter and cream, warm gently for about 5 minutes and the sauce should thicken.

  4. Taste, you might like to add some salt, it’s personal taste.



Make extra so you have a tasty lunch for the following day!
