Melt the butter in a small pan and stir in the flour. Cook, stirring continuously, for 1 minute, until the mixture forms a smooth 'roux'.
Remove the pan from the heat and gradually pour in the milk, stirring or whisking constantly. Return the pan to the heat and bring to the boil, still stirring or whisking.
Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce gently for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it is smooth and thick. Stir in the nutmeg, cayenne pepper and grated cheese, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
This was a nice change to make a difference to vegetables and I actually really enjoyed it. Think next time I will add more cayenne pepper and lots more cheese and even less flour (I found it got a bit too lumpy even though I was stirring it a lot) definitely be making this again - 27 Sep 2013
