In a saute pan or skillet, saute the shallots in the butter until translucent. Add the mushrooms, ham, rosemary, and parsley. Sprinkle in the flour and stir in the broth. Adjust the taste by adding salt. Simmer for about 15 minutes.

Remove the bread mixture to a mixing bowl and add the milk, parsley, and nutmeg. Let it stand about 10 minutes. Be careful not to get the bread too wet. Add the eggs and salt and knead with your hands. Add the flour gradually until the mixture holds together and forms a ball.
