  • 1 Place the milk in a pan. Cut the onion in half and use the cloves to secure a bay leaf to it. Add that to the pan.
  • 2 Add the butter, a pinch of nutmeg and the Knorr Chicken Stock Pot to the pan, and stir it all in. Bring the pan to the boil.
  • 3 Take out the onion and stir in the ‘day old’ breadcrumbs. Cook slowly for 5–6 minutes to thicken the sauce and then pour it into a serving jug.
  • 4 Cover the jug with cling film and keep somewhere warm until it’s time to serve.
  • 5 Tip: However much sauce you make, stick to a 3:1 ratio. For example, 3 times the amount of milk to 1 times the volume of breadcrumbs, so 600ml milk and 200g of breadcrumbs as used here. Nice and simple!, Healthy Tips: Use wholemeal breadcrumbs rather than white breadcrumbs. Try Flora Buttery rather than butter.
