Bread Sauce

A bread sauce is a warm or cold sauce thickened with bread. It is a savory sauce served with a main meal.

Bread SauceThe sole survivor of the medieval bread-thickened sauces, the traditional British bread sauce is made with milk, butter or cream, and bread crumbs, flavored with onion, salt, cloves, mace, pepper and bay leaf, with the fat from roasting often added too. 

It typically accompanies domestic fowl such as turkey or chicken. The use of slightly stale bread is optimal, making it an economical way of using up leftover bread. The sauce is easy to make and uses readily available ingredients.

The basic recipe calls for the dairy products (2 cups of milk, with or without cream) to be heated to simmering. Then a whole, peeled onion (with a few cloves and a bay leaf added optionally) and the milk left alone for half an hour or so. It is then strained, briefly re-simmered, with breadcrumbs and then butter (if any) added as thickeners, and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste.

Turkish cuisine also features a cold sauce made from breadcrumbs mixed with pounded walnuts or hazelnuts and served with chick pea salads and, most famously, with chicken or duck as Circassian chicken.
