Prep Time:


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 medium avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 large hard-cooked egg, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 (2-oz.) jar black caviar, chilled and drained
  • Thin breadsticks, assorted crackers

Preparation

  1. 1. Spoon sour cream into a 1-qt. zip-top plastic bag. Snip 1 corner of bag to make a small hole; pipe sour cream into 6 (2-oz.) shot glasses.
  2. 2. Combine avocado and next 3 ingredients in a bowl. Mash with a fork, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 3. Spoon avocado mixture over sour cream in shot glasses. Top each with tomato, egg, and 1/2 to 1 tsp. caviar. Reserve remaining caviar for another use. Serve parfaits with breadsticks and assorted crackers.
  4. Party Tip: We used less expensive, shelf-stable lumpfish caviar found near the canned tuna. It costs around $5 for a small jar. Another affordable choice is salmon caviar. Its bright orange color would look stunning atop each parfait. Try fresh caviar if your seafood department stocks it. It may cost a tad more, but you only need a few teaspoons.
