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

Ingredients:

  • 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
