A good and easy recipe to make for Christmas.


  • 625ml whole milk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 peppercorns
  • 1 onion, halved
  • 6 cloves
  • 75g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 75g white breadcrumbs
  • knob of butter, softened
  • good splash of double cream
  • grating of nutmeg


Step 1

Put the milk in a pan with the bay leaves and peppercorns, stud the onion halves with the cloves and add to the milk. Heat over a medium heat until the milk just begins to boil, then remove, cover and set aside for an hour or so to infuse. Using a slotted spoon, remove the solids and discard.

Step 2

Reheat and stir in the breadcrumbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the butter and double cream, and then season to taste with salt, pepper and a good grating of nutmeg. Serve in a warmed bowl.
