Brunch Recipes: Smoked Salmon & Chives Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs - BirdsParty.com

Following from last week's brunch post, and as promised; here's my recipe for Vol-au-vent Baked Eggs.

Baked eggs is something I've pick up in France (œufs cocotte), and it's a great way to serve eggs for an occasion such as brunch, because you can get all the yummy flavors and fun of the egg (yes, eggs are fun!) without the 'slaving over a hot stove' factor.

Party Food | Italian Sausage & Ravioli Appetizer Recipe

Italian food has a very special place in my heart due to my Italian roots. To me, it's more than food - it means love, comfort, family values, tradition... I still remember to this day, being in awe of my grandmother's pasta-making skills , in her kitchen cutting tagliatelle with a  knife, dusting them with semolina and hanging them to dry on a  broomstick made by my granddad!

They are really popular, and present in most Brazilian parties and celebration buffets, so we couldn't have a Brazilian inspired World Cup party without them. Even Nigella has her own recipe for these!
