Come Party With Me: St. Patrick's Day — Menu

Come Party With Me: St. Patrick's Day — Menu

Even though Aimee's St. Patrick Day party starts after dinner, she's planning on providing guests with a small selection of Irish inspired snacks. It's always nice to have some food on hand, especially when heavy drinking is involved. This menu twists classic Irish flavors – cheddar cheese, dark beer, corned beef, and smoked salmon — into modern favorites.

An Irish cheddar and stout fondue is gooey and decadent. Smoked salmon puffs are easy to make in advance and divinely addicting. Reuben roll ups are the perfect drunk food because they taste like an Irish pizza pocket. For all of these wonderful recipes,

Smoked Salmon-Stuffed Puffs

Smoked Salmon-Stuffed Puffs

Smoked Salmon-Stuffed Puffs

Ingredients

  1. Puffs
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  4. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 4 large eggs
  7. 2 tablespoons poppy seeds, for sprinkling
  8. Filling
  9. 1/2 pound sliced smoked salmon
  10. 1/4 pound cream cheese, softened
  11. 6 tablespoons sour cream
  12. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  13. 1 small garlic clove
  14. Tabasco sauce

Directions

  1. Make the puffs: preheat the oven to 400° and position 2 racks in the upper and lower third. Lightly grease 2 large rimmed baking sheets.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the water, butter and salt to a boil. Off the heat, add the flour and stir vigorously until combined.
  3. Return to the heat and cook over moderate heat, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat at medium speed for 1 minute. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, until thick, smooth and shiny.
  5. Transfer the dough to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tip. Pipe 1-inch mounds onto the prepared baking sheets, about 3/4 inch apart. Using lightly moistened fingertips, smooth the tops. Sprinkle with the poppy seeds and bake for 20 minutes, shifting the pans halfway through, until the puffs are risen and golden. Lower the oven to 250°.
  6. With the tip of a knife, poke a hole into the side of each puff and return to the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes longer, with the oven door slightly ajar, to dry out the centers. Transfer to a rack and cool.
  7. Meanwhile, make the filling: in a food processor, combine the smoked salmon with the cream cheese, sour cream, mustard and garlic and process until smooth; season with Tabasco.
  8. Transfer the filling to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch tip. Pipe the filling into the holes in the sides of the puffs and transfer to a serving plate. Serve right away.

Serves 10-12.

Make ahead: the unfilled baked puffs can be frozen for up to 1 month; recrisp in a 325° oven. The filling can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

These sounds great! I am going to try new ways to use potatoes this year- I found German chocolate cake made with potatoes and I might even have a make your own mashed potatoes bar.
