Melt butter in a saucepan.
Add flour, and stir in with a wooden spoon until it forms a paste, for about a minute.
Take off the heat and add some milk, continuing to stir.
Continue adding milk, while stirring all the time, until sauce has thickened.
Add a dash of nutmeg if using.
Put back on the heat to warm through.
This can used to make many recipes, lasagna, fish pie, macaroni cheese, try adding different herbs and spices and add to chicken or fish.
Experiment and enjoy!
