To pull this sophisticated dish together fast, purchase peeled, boiled eggs in the deli or dairy section of your grocery store. Use leftover caviar and purchased boiled eggs to make extra-special deviled eggs.

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 2

Combine avocado and next 3 ingredients in a bowl. Mash with a fork, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 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.

Step 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.

I made these for a party and they were wonderful. I doubled the recipe and followed it exactly. The guests loved these and they were so simple--I will definitely make them again.

This is a fabulous recipe. I served it at a holiday gathering in clear shot glasses. Everyone was scraping the glass for every little bit. I did leave out the egg only because one of the group is allergic and I didn't want them to get any by accident. Even without it the parfaits were a hit. I will definitely make it again and again.
