Method

  1. In a covered, non-stick pan, gently fry the onions and bay leaves in the butter for 10 mins, until soft. Add the milk and cloves and simmer for 30 mins, stirring now and then.
  2. Take out the bay and cloves, then blitz in a food processor until smooth. This will keep for 2 days in the fridge.
  3. On the day, tip the cream into a pan, add the onion sauce, then mix well. Add the bread and stir until soft but still textured. Add milk to thin if necessary. Season and serve warm.

Made this for the first time for Christmas dinner, I liked being able to prepare part of the dish before the big day - it turned out perfectly!
