Bread Sauce


  • 2 ounces of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 pint of milk
  • 6 peppercorns
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of cream, or 1/2 ounce of butter
  • small piece of onion


Steep the onion and peppercorns in the milk, and put the milk on to boil.

Then remove the onions and peppercorns, and sprinkle in the crumbs.

Set the sauce by the side of the fire for six minutes, and then heat to boiling point, adding either the cream or butter.

Salt must be added to taste; also a little cayenne.
