Ingredients

  • 2 cups/475 ml milk
  • 1 onion, stuck with 4 whole cloves pinch of nutmeg
  • 10 or 12 whole white peppercorns

  • 1 cup / 60 g white bread crumbs (preferably grated fresh from a 2-day-old loaf with crusts removed)
  • Salt and ground white pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream

Directions

Pour the milk into a small saucepan and add the onion, nutmeg, peppercorns, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let steep for 30 minutes.
