A nice and elegant way to serve scrambled eggs for brunch, holiday guests or a very special day! You can make these puffs ahead of time and then at the last minute, scramble the eggs and if feeling perfectly decadent, serve with caviar. Found these originally on Pepperidge Farm web site but have tweaked it slightly.
