Creamy Caviar Spread Recipe


This is an excellent way to stretch expensive caviar. The delicate eggs are mixed into a creamy dip served with toast points and raw vegetables for dipping.

Prep Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes


  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups (12-ounces) sour cream, divided use
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives
  • 3-1/2 ounces black lumpfish caviar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, grated
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely minced
  • Toast points, crackers, and trimmed raw vegetables


With an electric mixer on low speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Mix in 1 cup of sour cream (reserving remaining 1/2 cup for later use), sweet onions, chives, salt, and pepper until combined. Gently fold in the caviar.

Mound the mixture on a decorative serving plate and cover evenly with the remaining 1/2 cup of sour cream. Sprinkle with grated hard-boiled egg and parsley.

Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. Serve with toast points, crackers, and raw vegetables.

Yield: 8 to 12 servings
