pate a choux "puffs" savory filling ideas?

sjahns | Mar 28, 2011 09:49 PM

Just for kicks I decided to try pate a choux today for the first time for cream puffs. I've never even eaten a cream puff before today but I had some left over bavarian cream so I tried them out, and they were delicious, but they are very "neutral" so I figured I could use them as a savory shell too. I looked around on the web and I all I really found was chicken salad and tuna salad as stuffings for them which is okay, but kind of boring. Any advice/ideas for savory fillings or other uses for pate a choux (aside from eclairs and cream puffs.) Also, it seems like the ones I made were abnormally large, about the size of large orange if size makes a difference for what kind of fillings to use.

Thanks in advance :)
