OMG you don't know what you are missing!!! We all fight over it in our family so several packets get made at once. It's supposed to be really easy to make from scratch but I've never done it.
Make yer own it is MUCH better. Nigella version is good. Remember bread sauce is NOT designed to be slimming (but does not seem to have done Nigella any harm
1 day-old loaf unsliced white bread, cut into bits and usually with the crust removed
1 litre/2 pints full-fat
1 onion, peeled and quartered
2 fresh bay leaves
1 tsp white peppercorns
2 blades fresh mace or heaped ¼ tsp ground mace
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp double cream, optional
1 fresh nutmeg, for grating
Cut the onion in quarters and stick a clove in each
Put the onion and all the other herby things in a pan with the milk and bring just to the boil. Cover and leave for 30 mins at least. Sieve out the bits from the milk and pour it over the bread than mash it with a spoon. Add the butter and cream just before serving.
Yep, more work but most can be done the day before.
