Method

 
Place the butter in a pot and melt over a low heat until frothy.
Add the flour, and stir well to cook it. This is called a roux. If you don't cook it out, it will taste floury.
Take it off the heat and let it cool slightly.
Add the milk slowly and with a WHISK, quickly mix it into the roux.
It is important to use a whisk so you do not get lumps.
Add the nutmeg.
As the milk heats up it will thicken the sauce, so be sure to stir with the whisk taking special care to scrape the bottom.
Season with salt and pepper.Add the nutmeg.
Use cream if you are wanting a richer sauce.
