Method

  1. Simmer the milk, butter, onion, cloves, star anise and herbs in a pan for 20 mins. Can be done the day before and left to infuse in the fridge. Strain the mixture and return the liquid to the pan. Place back on the heat and scatter in the breadcrumbs. 

  2. Simmer and stir for 3-4 mins until you have a thick sauce. Stir in the clotted cream and nutmeg, season generously and serve. Can be made up to three days ahead; reheat on the hob or in the microwave on medium for three mins.
