Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the milk and cream, beating with a wire whisk.
Then return the pan to a high heat and cook, stirring constantly with the whisk, until the sauce comes to a boil and is thick and smooth.
Reduce the heat and simmer, still stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Then add the grated cheese and set the pan aside.
