    Bread Sauce

    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Cook Time: 12 minutes

    Serving Size: 6


    • 1 small onion, cut across into halves
    • Whole cloves
    • 500ml / ¾ pint of Lactofree milk
    • 2 bay leaves
    • Plenty of fresh black pepper (4 grinds)
    • A pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
    • ½ tsp of salt
    • 4 medium slices of White Genius Gluten Free Bread, whizzed into fine breadcrumbs
    • 30g / 1oz dairy free butter substitute


    1. Stud the cut side of the onion halves with the cloves and place, cloves down in a medium, heavy bottomed pan.
    2. Place the bay leaves, nutmeg, four grinds of black pepper and salt with the milk into the pan and slowly bring the milk to a gentle simmer. Simmer for five minutes then remove from the heat and leave the ingredients to infuse until the milk is cool. Strain the flavoured milk, through a sieve into a clean pan.
    3. Gently reheat the milk to a simmer and stir in the breadcrumbs. Stir slowly over a low heat until the breadcrumbs are soft and swollen and have thickened the sauce.
    4. The sauce should be creamy in consistency, so add a splash more milk if it is too thick.
    5. Just before serving, stir in the butter, taste and season with more salt and freshly ground pepper, as necessary.
