Festive Bread Sauce……Our Traditional Family Recipe

Our Christmas feast....Without our 'hand me down' family bread sauce recipe, it just wouldn't be the same. Something so simple, using onion & festively infused milk, a stale loaf and some freshly ripped bay leaves. Totally a must have! and our invitation... forget the packet stuff and defiantly forget using over processed sliced bread. The rest of the world may feel this accompaniment is weird, but give it a try world and see.....
