  • In a small saucepan over med-high heat; bring milk to a simmer.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter; when the butter starts to bubble, whisk in the flour; cook, stirring constantly for 5-6 minutes; then remove pan from heat.
  • Whisk in the hot milk all at once.
  • Add in the cayenne, nutmeg, and salt/pepper to taste.
