Ingredients

  • 200g brioche , torn into pieces
  • 1 onion , peeled and halved
  • 10 cloves
  • 600ml whole milk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 2 large garlic cloves , lightly bashed
  • 30g butter

  • STEP 1

    Put the brioche into a food processor and blitz to fine breadcrumbs. Set aside.
