    Directions

    1. Stale your bread prior: A day or two before making, de-crust your bread, cube, then lay out on a cooling rack for a day or so. A pizza cutter works well for de-crusting and cubing. Once stale, keep in baggie until ready.
    2. Using a double-boiler, simmer milk, onion, and cloves until onions are soft and transparent.
    3. Add bread. Simmer until all the bread has unconstituted and is thick like custard, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
