Directions

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