Chop the leeks and chives.
Crumble the hot smoked salmon into a bowl and add the chopped leeks and chives.
Add some salt and stir.
Pour the salmon mixture on top of the potatoes in the molds.
Top with the remaining potatoes.
Whisk the eggs with the milk and heavy cream. Pour it in the molds.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the custard has set.
Let the puddings cool slightly and then run a knife around the edges to loosen them.
