I really like the cream puffs with chicken salad, but someone else is bringing the savory food. I bring either petit fours or the eclairs and tea. I'm going to take some of my new teas and see how well it is received.

Enjoyed reading this thread, particularly the sharing of results and input. Glad it was bumped up.

Constance, you reminded me of a recipe, I've yet to make, but looks Oh So Good - Salmon Cream Puffs. Don't want to hijack the thread, so if anyone is interested I can post the recipe in the appropriate place.

licia and mish, I would like both of your recipes. I'm going to an informal wedding next month for a dear friend (second time around) and we are all bringing the food. Either puff sounds perfect!

Mudbug, do you mean the recipe for chicken salad? I use poached chicken breast, celery, red onion and enough mayo to blend - but not enough to make the puffs soggy. Also I froze my puffs ahead of time and split and stuffed them the day of the wedding.

I found the recipe for the onion-cheese puffs (an onion flavored cream puff), but I'm not sure where to post it. As soon as I find out where it should be, I will post it. Any suggestons?

Not yet. Madeleine wanted white cake instead of the eclairs (not sure she is actually my kid now!) and then I began puppysitting. WOW! I forgot how much work they are. I am going to try them when I have a moment this week I promise!
