Melt butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly. Bring to the boil and add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Add the cheese and stir until melted.

Remove from the heat and mix in the crabmeat and egg yolks. Spread the mixture in a shallow baking tin to a 1cm thickness.
