1 tablespoon butter or margarine
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded white cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon grated whole or dash of dried nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add the milk, stirring with a whisk until well-blended. Cook until slightly thick (about 10 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add cheese and remaining ingredients, stirring until the cheese melts.
