A couple weeks ago a few wonderful fellow home cooks that I recently met through Umi Kitchen and I decided to have a potluck brunch together that happened to fall on Valentine's Day weekend. I immediately got excited because, well, who the hell wouldn't?!
I knew straight away that I wanted egg cups to be my contribution. After all they are delicious, beautiful, and easy to transport.
But there was one small problem. Our host, Dajung, is pescetarian - so I didn't want to show up with my original Ham and Spinach Egg Cups that she wouldn't be able to eat! That's when I decided these cups needed a friendly upgrade and my smoked salmon version was born.
They were a perfect savory edition to Dajung's waffles. We also had salmon and chicken nuggets, donut-cookies (yes, donut-cookies! Speculoos filled nonetheless!), lemon curd, fresh fruit, banana bread, and tiramisu. It was quite the feast!
If you have made my original Ham and Spinach Egg Cups then you know these are super easy to assemble and cook. This version features cucumber, red onion, and capers to compliment the smoked salmon lining.
Now go make these for your next potluck brunch! And if you've made both versions of my egg cups, I'm curious to know which one is your favorite. Let me know in the comments below!
