Preheat to 400Â°F.
Butter 2 baking sheets.
Combine water, 1/3 cup milk, butter, salt, nutmeg and pepper in small saucepan and bring to boil over medium high heat, making sure butter is completely melted.
Remove from heat and immediately stir in flour using wooden spoon until all flour is absorbed and mixture leaves sides of pan.
Return to medium heat 2 minutes to cook flour.
Transfer to mixing bowl.
Beat in 4 eggs one at a time until mixture is thick and smooth.
Add milk and mix thoroughly.
Blend in cheese, onion, parsley and dill.
Lightly sprinkle prepared baking sheets with water, shaking off excess.
Spoon batter into 16 inch pastry bag fitted with 3/4 inch tube.
Pipe 1 1/4- to 1 1/2 inch mounds onto baking sheets.
Combine remaining egg and salt and blend well.
Brush over tops of gougeres, being careful not to drip onto baking sheet or rising will be impaired.
