  • 1 egg (hard-cooked )
  • salt
  • pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
  • 1.2 cup crème fraiche (sour cream, or fresh white goat cheese)

  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  3. To prepare the egg, using a fork, finely crumble the egg in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  4. To assemble each serving, starting at the handle end of the spoon, arrange rows of about 1/2 tsp. crème fraiche, sour cream, or goat cheese, about 1/2 tsp. egg, and about 1/2 tsp. caviar.
  5. Pass the assembled spoons on a tray or platter.
  6. Provide a glass or other container where your guests can place the spoons once they have taken their bite.
