It was time to leave liver alone! But I am sure I will be back to visit often. Here, however here is one recipe that is thought to be exquisite and many will love, but not me. I am not the best fish eater, and truth be told I have tried and did not care for, caviar. But then again, I do not care for lobster either.
I cam upon this book at my local thrift store and fell in love with it immediately! This book is from a group folks who attend church and enjoy the company of one another in my old (adopted) hometown, San Francisco. This is a compiled cookbook containing wonderful recipes passed down and shared with one another.
Caviar Pie Romanoff
not cooked from: Those People at That Church, The Saint Francis Lutheran Church Cookbook.
the intro: Jack and Marti Lundin have always loved to entertain, especially now that they have retired to the beautiful wine country of Sonoma County, California after Jack's 35 year career as a Lutheran pastor. This is their most special hors d'oeuvres.
6 hard boiled eggs, shelled
3 T mayonnaise
1 1/2 c minced sweet onions, white or yellow*
8 oz cream cheese
2/3 c sour cream
31/2 - 4 oz Romanoff Lumpfish Fish Caviar
Party rye slices, for serving
Finely chop eggs and mix with mayonnaise. Spread the mixture evenly in a well greased 8 inch springform pan or tart pan with removable bottom. Sprinkle onions over egg mixture.
In a blender or food processor, blend cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Spread over onions using a wet spatula. Cover and chill 3 hours or overnight.
Before serving spread caviar over the entire surface. Remove bottom from pan. Cut into 10-12 wedges to serve. Party rye makes a perfect accompaniment.
Note* Use onions that are very sweet, like Texas, Maui or Vidalia if available. If you wish to make this without the caviar use chopped well drained olives as the top layer. The flavor is very good, but of course the dish is not as elegant without the caviar.
And now in keeping with a fish theme, lets wander, shall we....
