Blini without caviar To me would just be just another crepe. Any topping will do. I like the idea of smoked salmon, creme fraiche or sour cream. Here are some other possibilities:

Hard-boiled eggs, scallions, pickled mushrooms, cabbage salad and sour cream or French Foie Gras. Perhaps shredded beets.

If you're not fond of caviar, I recall seeing recipes for what is called a poor man's caviar, made with an eggplant concoction.

I've been looking for a good recipe for more than a year now. Nothing really looks good or promising. I am originaly from Ukraine, not Russia, so no real conection there. But the Blini I have had back on my trips to Central Russia were so amasing, I have never had anything even remotly as good. I am still trying to find something decent. I just need to try to make some.

You are what you eat.
