1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

In a saucepan over low hear, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook. Stirring until well blended and bubbly. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute, or until sauce thickens. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg, and paprika. Remove from heat.
