Clam shaped appetizers made with madeline tins. Need ideas for filling

karykat | Dec 1, 2010 12:15 PM

I saw a recipe in Gourmet magazine years ago for some appetizers made with madeline tins. A savory pastry dough was pressed into the tin and baked. And then a caviar filling was added to the baked shell.

I want to try this for an upcoming holiday party with my very underused madeline tins. I have one that is not the usual narrow madeline shape but more of a wide clam shell shape. So I think they will look nice.

But I didn't want to use caviar. What else would be good? It would be just a little dollop in the shell.

I was thinking of maybe kind of a sauteed mushroom thing. But what else would be good?

(Could be something placed in the shell with a small cookie scoop. Or not.)

All ideas appreciated.
