Serves: 20 

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:3hr chilling  ›  Ready in:3hr20min 

  1. Spread the onion out on a kitchen towel set over a plate and place in the refrigerator to dry out a bit, about 30 minutes. Spread the chopped egg out on a decorative serving plate or other shallow dish. Refrigerate this too.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese and soured cream. Remove the serving dish from the refrigerator and sprinkle the onions over the eggs. Spoon the cream mixture over the onion layer and carefully spread flat. Spread black caviar over one half of the top and red caviar over the other half or if you are feeling creative, make a nice pattern. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.


Red and black caviar can be purchased in speciality shops or online.
