Give yourself a generous helping of this delicious bread sauce recipe using fresh brown breadcrumbs. It gives it a lovely nutty flavour and is equally as good as the classic version.

Stud the onion halves with the cloves. Put them in a saucepan with the milk, peppercorns and bay leaves. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to infuse for an hour or so.

Strain the milk into a pan and discard the onion, peppercorns and bay leaves. Add the breadcrumbs and the cream and simmer over a low heat for 5 minutes or until thickened.

Just before serving, stir in the butter, nutmeg and a little seasoning to taste.
