Grease a 12x10x3-inch baking pan. Spread remaining half of toast crumbs over bottom. Arrange half the eggplant over crumbs. Cover with meat sauce, then sprinkle 2 Tb of cheese from topping over it. Cover this with the remaining eggplant. To make the cream sauce, melt butter in a saucepan. Make a paste of the flour and cold milk and add the flour paste, warm milk and cream to the pan. Blend until smooth and simmer about 15 minutes. Remove from flame and add beaten eggs while stirring the sauce vigorously. Stir in the salt, nutmeg, and 1/3 cup cheese. Pour over the eggplant dish.
