Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Gradually add half-and-half, stirring constantly; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt, peppers, nutmeg, and hot sauce. Gradually stir in sour cream, cheese, and egg.
