  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix in flour and bring to a boil. Add pepper and salt as mixture starts to thicken. Slowly add milk and stir; return to a boil and remove from heat.

  5. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and heated through, about 30 minutes.
