Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat then add the flour and nutmeg and whisk well until melted. Allow the flour to cook for about a minute at this heat then add the milk gradually, whisking continually. Keep whisking and turn the heat up a little. After about 5 minutes, the white sauce should have thickened a little.
