Caviar Cocottes

Caviar Cocottes
This is an exquisitely delicious appetizer for special occasions. Very easy to make yet elegant.

3 hard boiled egg yolks
3 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise, divided
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup plus 1 heaping tablespoon sour cream, divided
1 small onion, diced fine
4 ounces caviar
lemon slices


Press the egg yolks through a sieve and mix them with 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise.

Preferably, spread the yolks on the bottom of four small ramekins. Second choice is one 8-ince pie plate.

Using a food processor, mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and 1 tablespoon of sour cream.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the egg mixture.


Spread a thin layer of sour cream over the top of the cream cheese mix, then a layer of onion.

Now, spread a layer of caviar on the top.


Garnish with lemon slices.


Serve this delicious, but simple, appetizer with toasted French bread.
