Ingredients

  • 1l full-fat milk
  • 1 small onion , finely sliced
  • 50g butter
  • generous grating nutmeg
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves , sliced
  • 8 slices white bread , crusts removed
  • 50g walnut

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING AHEAD?

The sauce can be made up to 2 days ahead and kept in the fridge, or frozen for up to 1 month. To reheat, defrost thoroughly if frozen, then reheat over a low flame, adding a splash of milk or cream to loosen the sauce if it’s too thick.
