Mix the mashed potato, spring onions and cheese in a bowl.

Warm the milk and butter with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Heat to just below boiling point, then beat the milk into the potato mixture and beat in the egg yolks.

Whisk the egg whites to form soft peaks, mix a spoonful into the potato mixture to loosen it then gently fold in the rest.
