Fancy Pants: Egg Salad & Salmon Roe

roe2

Here is another elegant appetizer, or in my case, breakfast.

I swear, I ate 8 of these for breakfast this a.m.

This is stupid easy and so good if you love egg salad, and you know I do.

Lightly toast some good whole wheat bread slices.

With a biscuit cutter, cut out rounds from the bread. If you are making appetizers, then use a smaller biscuit cutter and cut out 4 rounds, if for brunch, cut out 1 or 2 rounds.

Mash up some hard boiled eggs in a bowl.

Spread some real mayo on each slice of bread then carefully mound some chopped egg on top of the mayonnaise.



Top with a small spoonful of caviar or wild salmon roe (which are wonderful sticky little bursts of salt.....sounds gross, but they are divine).

Garnish each with a small piece of chive and you have an elegant brunch or appetizer.



I love these.

These are perfect little bites! I'm lucky to have some salmon roe at the moment and I didn't have breakfast yet, so I'm off to the kitchen right now to make these! Thanks!

I always keep a jar of salmon roe in the house -- frozen blinis from Whole Foods and some sour cream and you're transported to the Russian Tea Room!

Beautiful. They look good. I've never bought caviar. What's a good common kind to buy?

Stacey, what a gorgeous breakfast or appetizer. I could eat several and not even feel the least bit guilty.
