Bread Sauce

Bread Sauce

Be inspired by a quick and easy Bread Sauce recipe from Arla. Use Arla Lactofree spread and dairy drink to turn this favourite into a healthy hit.


Step 1
  • Cut the onion in half and stud the cut sides with the cloves. Once finished, place (cloves down) in a medium, heavy-bottomed pan.
Step 2
  • Place the bay leaves, nutmeg, four grinds of black pepper and salt with the Lactofree® dairy drink into the pan and slowly bring to a gentle simmer.
Step 3
  • Simmer for five minutes then remove from the heat and leave the ingredients to infuse until cool.
Step 4
  • Strain the flavoured mixture through a sieve into a clean pan.
Step 5
  • Gently reheat the liquid to a simmer and stir in the breadcrumbs. Stir slowly over a low heat until the breadcrumbs are swollen and have thickened the sauce.
Step 6
  • After about 10 minutes the sauce should be creamy in consistency. Feel free to add a splash more dairy drink if it is too thick.
Step 7
  • Finally, stir in the Lactofree spreadable and season with more salt and freshly ground black pepper as necessary. Serve immediately!
