Directions

  1. Cut the onions into eighths.
  2. In a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in milk, seasoned with nutmeg, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Cook until onions are soft. Remove bay leaf.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan; add flour, stirring for 3 minutes or until bubbly. Add flavored milk all at once and whisk to combine ingredients smoothly. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until just boiling; reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. If desired, strain the sauce through a fine sieve; return to saucepan to heat through.
  5. Serve hot.
