Method

  1. Heat the butter in a pan, add the onions and bay leaves, then gently fry with the lid on for 10 mins until soft, but not coloured.
  2. Add milk and cloves, then simmer gently, uncovered, for 30 mins, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove bay and cloves, then tip everything into a processor and blitz with two-thirds of the bread until smooth. Chill for up to two days. To serve, tip the cream into a pan, add the sauce, then stir until mixed. Tear in the remaining bread. Add a little milk if necessary to thin the consistency. Season and serve warm.

I just tipped all the cream and bread in, before freezing it ready for Christmas. But let me tell you, this is THE best bread sauce. EVER.

This was the nicest bread sauce I've made yet. I love the taste of cloves so I put a few extra in and tied them into a muslin bag so they were very easy to remove.

Absolute hit...we made it as part of our Christmas dinner. Really easy to make and we prepped it two days ahead for less stress on the big day!

Delicious! I couldn't stop dipping into it with the left over crusts while I was cooking it! If you leave out tearing the remainer of the bread in - it makes a wonderful fondue sauce!
