I like the little tiny tiny caviar. Black, red or gold and I even bought some wasabi green from Serfa's here in Los Angeles. << It's a kitchen store of quite an experience.
Anyway, try caviar just once and maybe you'll catch the bug.
I make caviar pie every year for the holidays.
My kids asked me from the get go, "Mom, is this fish eggs?" I said a confident, "No, it's caviar." That was enough for them and the caviar pie never lasts more than an hour no matter who's devouring it.
This is wonderful at any holiday party. It will disappear, promise!
In a pie plate of glass I put:
On the bottom, a layer of softened cream cheese
next layer on top of ^^^ is 4 or 5 hard cooked eggs peeled and chopped
" " " " " ^^^ " a layer of sour cream
Now buy 3 jars of caviar, red
, the little tiny caviars
Dot the sour cream in many places with dots of all 3 colors
Slice 3 scallions
on the diagonal in thin strips and sprinkle on top of caviar
Line a charger platter with fancy crackers of all sorts and place the pie plate in the center of the platter and dig in.
I hope you like this. So pretty, so festive and soooooo good!
