Sift together flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Alternately mix in milk and the flour mixture until smooth. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Press spaetzle mixture through a spaetzle press into the water. (You may also use a potato ricer, colander or a cheese grater.) When the spaetzle floats to the top of the water, remove it to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Mix in 2/3 of the cheese.
Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook until golden. Stir in spaetzle and remaining cheese until well blended. Remove from heat, and serve immediately.
