Melt half the butter in a heavy-based, nonstick saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook over a medium heat, stirring, until translucent.
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.
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.
Continue stirring off the heat until creamy. Serve at once on a bed of mixed leaves or on toast.
