Russian Eggs Recipe
Russian eggs are served with caviar on top. My mother-in-law always started her Christmas Eve party with everyone having a Russian egg in one hand, a shot of chilled vodka in the other and then a toast would be made. The intense flavor of the horseradish and the salty taste of the caviar deliver a surprising flavor. The shot of vodka is just an added bonus. A great way to get a party started!
This recipe was adapted from Allrecipes. Be sure to allow yourself enough time for the hard boiled eggs to cool before making Russian Eggs.
