  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 85g butter
  • 600ml milk
  • 5 cloves
  • good grating of nutmeg
  • 142ml pot double cream
  • 140g crustless, soft, open-textured white bread, cubed


  1. In a covered, non-stick pan, gently fry the onions and bay leaves in the butter for 10 mins, until soft. Add the milk and cloves and simmer for 30 mins, stirring now and then.

  2. Take out the bay and cloves, then blitz in a food processor until smooth. This will keep for 2 days in the fridge.

  3. On the day, tip the cream into a pan, add the onion sauce, then mix well. Add the bread and stir until soft but still textured. Add milk to thin if necessary. Season and serve warm.
