Deviled Eggs with Chives and Caviar

Makes 12 hors d’oeuvre


  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup caviar


1 | Place the eggs in a small saucepan, add water to cover, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Rinse the eggs under cold water. Refrigerate the eggs until chilled.

2 | Peel and halve the eggs. Remove the yolks and transfer to a medium bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork. Mix in the sour cream, mayonnaise, and mustard until smooth. Fold in most of the chives and season with salt. Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Carefully spoon 1 teaspoon of caviar atop each deviled egg, garnish with a piece or two of chive, and serve.
