  1. Melt half the butter in a heavy-based, nonstick saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook over a medium heat, stirring, until translucent.
  2. Add the mushrooms, cover and cook for 5-6 minutes. Add the nutmeg and herbs, and salt and pepper to taste. Remove to a bowl and set aside in a warm place. Wipe the pan.
  3. Melt the remaining butter in the pan and add the eggs, with salt and pepper to taste. Cook over a very low heat for 3-4 minutes or until they start to thicken. Add the mushroom mixture and goat's cheese, then remove from the heat.
  4. Continue stirring off the heat until creamy. Serve at once on a bed of mixed leaves or on toast.
