Simple Bread Sauce Recipe

We ran out of Colmans Bread Sauce mix just before Thanksgiving and some folks got into a bit of a lather about it. But, as I explained to them, bread sauce is one of the simplest sauces you can make. And you can make it from scratch for a few pennies in about five minutes.


  • Flour
  • Margarine or butter
  • Milk
  • White bread
  • Seasoning


  • Melt a tablespoon of butter in a small saucepan
  • Remove from the heat and stir in a tablespoon of flour; mix into a smooth paste
  • Add one cup of cold milk very slowly while stirring vigorously
  • Add a vegetable or chicken stock cube for extra flavour (optional)
  • Return to the heat and cook until the sauce thickens
  • Lightly toast two or three slices of white bread then cut into small croutons
  • Stir the croutons into the sauce until dissolved; use a hand blender for a smoother sauce
  • Season with salt, pepper and garlic

John's Notes
I served thick-cut pork steaks instead of turkey for Thanksgiving this year. I created a special bread sauce for pork by peeling, coring and finely chopping an apple. I microwaved the apple for a couple of minutes then stirred it into the bread sauce - a very tasty variation on an old tradition.
