|500 ml||milk — full cream|
|1/2 tsp||nutmeg — ground|
Put the butter into a pot and let it melt.
Add the flour and let it cook whilst stirring continuously – about 2-3 minutes.
Take the pot off the heat for a minute.
Add the milk slowly whilst whisking continuously. You don’t want lumps so using a small whisk will help as well as being off the heat.
Add the nutmeg and seasoning to taste.
To make a cheese sauce: Add grated cheese of your choice and a small squeeze of lemon.
