Cook shallot in butter until translucent. Soak roll in milk, then squeeze to remove excess liquid. In a bowl, combine roll, shallots, egg, ground meat and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

Press garlic through a garlic press into the mixture and stir in up to 1 cup of water until the sauce is smooth. Season with salt to taste.
