Egg Salad Profiteroles

Jump to recipe

With Easter being just around the corner, I have created this delicious appetizer which is appealing enough for a holiday party – Egg Salad Profiteroles.

Hi, my friends. I know I ask this way too often, but can you believe it’s almost Easter? Just recently I asked the similar question in different contexts. Can you believe it’s Christmas already? Can you believe it’s Valentine’s day? Trust me that very soon we will be saying this about Christmas again.

Oh well. Let’s talk about Easter and these Egg Salad Profiteroles. We don’t really celebrate Easter. It’s a lovely holiday, but we do not have any established traditions. On the other hand, Easter is also about delicious food, and you can rely on me here!

I rarely make traditional Easter recipes (Well, it would be hard to choose one as there are so many unique recipes from different countries), and I almost never baked a traditional Easter bread or cake. Normally, we go with something simple like a salad, asparagus, or deviled eggs. This year I wanted to create something special for you guys.

Sweet or savory? Having had a few thoughts, I narrowed down all my ideas to only two: profiteroles (As you may remember, I’ve been having a choux pastry kick lately) and deviled eggs (an unusual choice, eh?). Since I was planning to post this recipe for Tuna Deviled Eggs, I thought I should probably pick profiteroles.

Agreed. However, I still had an important question – what kind?

Wait. Why choose between choux pastry and eggs when you combine two things together? Egg Salad Profiteroles to be!

Right now, while writing this text, I’ve got a glimpse of another good idea – carrot cake profiteroles!

Anyway, I have shared a couple of recipes for profiteroles with a sweet filling, but I think I did like this savory even more. And savory profiteroles are so versatile. I can give you a few dozens of ideas right now (But I won’t because I am a greedy guy haha). Okay, sometimes I am a nice guy. Here we go:

  • cream cheese and smoked salmon / chopped shrimp
  • ricotta, lemon, and herbs
  • cream cheese and sun-dried tomatoes
  • shredded chicken and cream cheese
  • hummus
  • pesto combined with mild soft cheese

That’s clearly not even a dozen of ideas, but the greedy part has just won :)

(Nope indeed. You can create dozens of new ideas by mingling those.)

These Egg Salad Profiteroles turned out so delicious that I will definitely be making savory choux pastry this year. And please join me on this tasty journey. Promise?

Happy Easter!

    I love egg salad (and potato salad!) and your recipe sounds great (not to mention it looks STUNNING). I’ve pinned it, and I’ll be looking for an opportunity to try it out!

    Wow, I’m in love with the idea of savory profiteroles, you’re a genius, Ben! I bet it would be wonderful with a chickpea salad or with a pesto filling too!

    I thank you Ben for such an excellent Easter recipe! I bet that the combination of choux pastry and egg salad goes well together. I’m tasting this in my imagination as I write this and I think it does! We don’t celebrate Easter either really and I haven’t made any special recipes for Easter so you’re one above me there! Take care and have a great weekend.

    These sound delicious! I love egg salad, although I rarely ever make it. I’ve long said that a sandwich is only as good as the bread it’s made on…so making a sandwich on a profiterole just blew my mind. It’s like sandwich elevated to 100% pure awesomeness! Seriously, though, the crunchy profiterole combined with the smooth egg salad is making my mouth water. Can you please deliver some of these for me for lunch today? Thanks! And happy Easter to you and Andrey!
