Easy Bread Sauce Recipe 

By: Virtuelicious

This is the easiest ever bread recipe!
Do you make your own bread sauce or do you buy yours?
A sachet of bread sauce from the supermarket costs 85p and ready made bread sauce costs £2.25. That’s daylight robbery when you consider the ingredients! Talking about ingredients, check out the extra unnecessary ingredients they add – all stuff I can’t pronounce let alone know what they are.
This recipe is simple and you also know what goes in it.
Let me know if you make your own ?


  • 1 slice bread
  • 25g butter
  • 150ml milk
  • 1/8 onion
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch Virtuelicious chai masala

You probably  have most of these ingredients already  and if you don’t then please don’t rush out and buy it, just make do with what you have. Either omit it or substitute it for something else. All you really need is the bread, butter and milk. Having said that you could probably even substitute the butter with oil.

Dare to Dream

Do you remember a time when the milkman delivered milk in bottles which you rinsed and left out for him to collect and reuse once you were done with them? I do! Whatever happened to valuing the resource we have available to us, about respecting it and preserving what we have? It seems that now everything we buy is packaged in some form or other, sometimes triple packed, and we rarely give a thought to the necessity of the packaging. There have been steps taken to reduce packaging – the carrier bag charge goes some way towards it but nowhere near enough. Recycling initiatives are progress but recycling still consumes energy and resources. Best to not use it in the first place. I look forward to a time when we stop this mindless fixation on consumption, I dream of a day when we can take our own containers to the shop and decant our food and drinks…can you imagine decanting milk into your own bottle, buying chocolate by the gram and having no packaging to throw away? Please let your imagination free and help us to achieve a less wasteful future. Dare to dream.
