  • Simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes
  • Pour through a sieve and leave to one side
  • In a saucepan melt the butter
  • Stir in the flour until you’ve made a roux
  • Slowly add the milk, mixing into the roux until you have a smooth and thick sauce
  • Add the mustard and nutmeg
  • Add the cheddar No. 1
  • Add Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and leave to cool
  • In another bowl separate the yolks from the whites
