Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Combine the milk, onion, cloves, bay leaf, peppercorns and mace in a medium-sized microwaveable bowl. Place in the microwave and cook for 2 mins on High. Remove, cover with cling film and stand for 15 mins, or chill for up to 2 days if the milk’s sell-by date allows.

  • STEP 2

    When you’re ready to serve, strain the sauce, then return to the bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, place in the microwave again and cook for 3 mins on High. If the sauce is a bit lumpy, whisk until smooth, then stir in the cream, nutmeg and seasoning. Finish with a knob of butter.

RECIPE TIPS
BAY LEAVES

To extract the best flavour from a fresh bay leaf, firmly fold it in half or scrunch it in your hand to break the spine before adding it to the bowl. This releases the essential oils.
