Method

  1. Pour the milk into a pan, add the onion, butter, nutmeg, bay and garlic, then bring to the boil. Turn the heat to its lowest setting and infuse the milk for 30 mins. If you have time, do this the day before, leave to cool completely, then chill overnight.
  2. To make the sauce, bring the milk back up to the boil and break the bread into large chunks. Fish out the bay leaves, then add the bread and most of the walnuts to the sauce.
  3. Blitz everything in a food processor or with a hand blender, then season to taste. Serve the sauce piping hot, scattered with the rest of the walnuts, one of the bay leaves and a little butter melting over the top, if you like.

Okay - just gone back to my original attempt. I think the recipe should say 8 thick slices of white bread - the consistency came together after about 12 medium slices. A little extra nutmeg sorted out the flavour, too.

I would say that you would need a family who was very, very keen on bread sauce to get through a litre - especially if you've got cranberry sauce on the table as well. I'd think half quantities would be fine.

I think there may be a typo (possibly 1 pint/568ml milk rather than 1 litre/1.75 pints?). I've just made this to freeze for Christmas (as suggested) and it's very watery, and quite bland. I'm going to try it again with 500ml milk, on the basis I can always add more to the food processor later if I need to.
