About this recipe: This beautiful and elegant caviar starter has a base mixture of hard boiled eggs and mayonnaise covered with cream cheese, soured cream and onions and topped with black lumpfish caviar. The piquant salty flavour of the caviar with the layers of creamy and earthy flavours will make a gorgeous (and quite affordable!) starter for any dinner party or elegant meal.
