For a substantial appetizer, you can't go wrong with mini sandwiches. Instead of serving egg or ham salad on ordinary bread, I like to present them on homemade puff pastry.—Karen Owen, Rising Sun, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • HAM SALAD FILLING:
  • 1 can (4-1/4 ounces) deviled ham

Nutritional Facts

1 egg salad-stuffed puff equals 38 calories, 4 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 44 mg cholesterol, 87 mg sodium, 2 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein. 1 ham salad-stuffed puff equals 40 calories, 4 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 18 mg cholesterol, 42 mg sodium, 1 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets.
  3. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks. Immediately cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool completely.
  4. In separate bowls, combine the ingredients for egg salad filling and ham salad filling. Split puffs and remove soft dough from inside. Just before serving, spoon fillings into cream puffs; replace tops. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 7-1/2 dozen.

If the puff pastry is baked properly, there shouldn't be any soft dough in the center.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2010

I have made this several times an it is always a hit. People especailly like the egg salad. I have never gotten 7 1/2 dozen out of the recipe though, most often 3 to 4 dozen.
