In a bowl whisk together eggs, milk, herbs, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in enough flour to make a thick batter. Using a metal colander set over a pot of boiling, salted water, press spaetzle batter through holes directly into water. In another saute pan melt butter over medium-low heat. When spaetzle are cooked through, they will float to surface. Scoop up with a slotted spoon and drain well as they cook or drain all at once. Toss in pan with melted butter.
