Linda Hogan


C white or red onion, minced
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 C sour cream
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 T mayonnaise
2-3 oz caviar or lumpfish
2-3 T chopped parsley
Fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Caviar is very expensive. If you can find black lumpfish is suffices quite well. Most people don't know the difference and you can call it caviar unless you are serving a very elite crowd.
Before you begin, think about the bowl you are going to use. The bowl, or springform pan will determine the size and shape of the final product.
Thoroughly drain and rinse caviar so as not to end up with unappitizing black liquid dripping down the white cream cheese.
Line bottom and sides of round bowl with saran.
Mix softened cream cheese with sour cream.
Chop eggs and mix with mayonnaise. Add squeeze of lemon.

First layer: put cream cheese mixture in bottom of bowl.
Second layer: minced onion
Third layer: egg mixture

This can be prepared in spring form pan. If doing so, reverse layer order.

Cover with saran wrap and chill overnight

Remove top saran. Place serving platter on top of bowl. Holding firmly, turn bowl upside down on platter which places egg mix on bottom.
Spread top with additional sour cream if needed.
Carefully put drained caviar on top.
Garnish with chopped parsley.
Serve with crackers.
