DIRECTIONS

  • Heat butter in a medium saucepan until melted.
  • Add flour, stirring until smooth.
  • Cook gently over medium heat until light golden brown, 6-7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the milk in a separate pan until almost boiling.
  • Add milk to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time, whisking continuously until very smooth.
  • If lumps begin to form, you need to adjust the heat up a bit higher.
  • Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 seconds, continuing to stir.
  • Remove from the heat and season with salt and nutmeg.
  • Note: After I had brought it to a boil and let it cook for 30 seconds, it was still too liquidy.
  • I continued to cook it over high heat, stirring constantly, until it thickened down, and began to coat the back of the spoon.
