Bread sauce is a great addition to meat dishes. It works best when served with roasted poultry. That can be a whole roasted chicken, turkey, roasted drumsticks or thighs. The preparation of bread sauce takes only a few minutes. You need to put all the ingredients in a pot and boil them, so that the flavours of the spices merge together. Breadcrumbs are added in the final stage – they make the sauce thick. I recommend you preparing this bread sauce at home, I think it will hit your taste buds.

How to make bread sauce.
Pour milk into a pot, add onion cut into large pieces, bay leaf, peppercorns, ground black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, salt and butter. Simmer for 15 minutes over a very low heat. Next, remove the milk from the heat and cool it down.
Pour the cold milk through a fine sieve to remove the additives. After that, put the milk on the heat, bring it to a boil and add the breadcrumbs. Stirring constantly, cook the sauce for 1-2 minutes. Serve the bread sauce warm.
Good to know when making bread sauce.
I usually use stale bread to prepare the bread sauce. I remove its crust, divide the soft part into smaller pieces with my hands, then chop it with a food processor. I like bread sauces prepared from such bread better than the ones made with bread crumbs.
