This is an old work for GoodHousekeeping magazine and one of our favorite food shots. Easy to make and looks beautiful enough to serve to your guests.
Takes 20 minutes
Makes 4 to 6 servings
2 bars cream cheese, at room temperature
1⁄2 white onion, finely chopped
1 hard boiled egg, finely chopped
1 tub caviar
1 Whip cream cheese in an electric mixer with a paddle attachment in medium-low until smooth.
2 In a medium size glass bowl, evenly spread half of the whipped cream cheese. Layer with onion, egg, the rest of the whipped cream cheese and lastly, with caviar. (Use a spring-form pan if you want it freestanding. Refrigerate layered cream cheese for 30 minutes before removing from pan. Decorate sides with thin slices of lemon.)
3 Serve with lemon wedges and thinly sliced toasted baguette on the side.
