Preheat oven to 180C fan-forced. Combine butter, nutmeg and 250ml water in a saucepan, season to taste. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, add flour, stir quickly until smooth and combined (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, then stir in Gruyère. Spoon heaped tablespoons of mixture onto a baking-paper-lined oven tray, bake until golden and crisp (8-10 minutes). Serve immediately.
