Roasted Red Potatoes with Sour Cream, Lemon Zest and Caviar
12 roasted red potatoes
1 1/2 cups sour cream
Zest of one lemon
Chives, 1-inch pieces sniped on the diagonal
Caviar (we used an inexpensive kind from IKEA)
Slice potatoes in half, then slice a tiny bit of of each bottom so that potatoes don't roll over.
Using the small end of a melon baller, scoop out a small amount of potato from each.
Spoon sour cream into a sandwich-size zip lock bag and snip of the tip. Pipe sour cream into each potato (alternatively you could use a spoon, but piping is easier and it looks more uniform).
Top each potato with a pinch of lemon zest and garnish with a 1-inch piece of chive. Finally, using a demitasse or other small spoon, top each potato with a little caviar.
Excellent with Champagne!
