  2. 2 of 4 Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk in a thin stream. Whisk in mustard, onion powder, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne. Bring to a simmer; cook 3 minutes, whisking occasionally.

Bake at 375 degrees for 18 minutes until lightly browned. Cool slightly before running a thin spatula around edge and spooning out of pans.
