Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 2

    Add milk and cloves, then simmer gently, uncovered, for 30 mins, stirring occasionally.

  • STEP 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.
