  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Slice off the top third of the head of garlic so the tips of the cloves are exposed. Place in a small baking dish, and add just enough water to cover the bottom of the dish. Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the garlic, then cover with a lid or foil. Bake for 45 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix together the flour and milk so there are no lumps, and pour into the pan with the butter. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes. Squeeze the garlic cloves from their skin, and mash. Stir garlic into the sauce, and season with salt, peppercorns, and nutmeg.

Delicious. Cheated and used jarred roasted garlic as a timesaver. Also used heavy cream.

This was great! I served it over Blackened Salmon Fillets (from allrecipes) and chilie flavored pasta. It is worth the time!

This is superb. Roasting the garlic is key. I usually double the recipe. Also, I cook the flour and butter together first. Very creamy and flavorful.

I had some leftover baked garlic and was looking for a way to use it...this sauce was terrific. So yummy!! Thanks. Susan

I used this sauce to re-create a dish that I love at a local Italian recipe. I did not roast the garlic, but added less. I also added only 1 Tablespoon of flour. Finally, I used fresh ground ...

What a delicious sauce! I didn't have any nutmeg, but it still turned out wonderful. I served it over linguine with some Cajun grilled chicken. A very versatile time we'll try it wi...
