Vol-au-vents

Have to make about 4 dozen small ones for a party. In a panic as I have very few ideas. Cream cheese and ginger and savoury egg mixed with mayo are the only ones to come to mind. Any ideas out there? Reasonably simple please. Thanks.

An oyster filling

I used to do that with canned oysters & I don't have the recipe any more, but it was basically a thickish white sauce with heaps of oysters & seasonings to taste, in it & they always went down well.
How about cheese, capers, smoked mussels in a eggs cream & lemon pepper sauce . blue cheese & roasted walnuts in an egg/cream sauce, leek & feta + sauce . mushroom, brie & pine nuts+ sauce or chargrilled capsicum & black olives + an egg/cream sauce?
I make variations of these a lot when entertaining & thank Jo Seagar for the ideas.

I love smoked fish - flaked smoked fish fillets in a white/cheese sauce and parsley.

Thank you all very much - such great ideas, not too hard, and I am not in a panic any more!

I frequently make smoked oysters, or smoked mussels in a white sauce for mine. Two cans for an average amounts of white sauce. They are always popular.

Cream cheese mashed up with something tasty eg chopped chives, prawns, smoked salmon is usually a hit.

Had to edit before the spelling police arrive!
