Mini Savory Cheesecake with Caviar and Chives

Close up on the savory cheesecake with a cracker base with cream cheese flacked with caviar and chives
These Mini Savory Cheesecakes with Caviar and Chives are such a great party canapé or appetizer. The freeform nature gives them a slightly rustic look and then the use of caviar adds an elegantly edge. Elegantly rustic?

Is that a thing? Ha, I am making it a thing!!! Plus they can be made in advance and looks so pretty on your platter or plate. What is not to love about that!

I just love how pretty these are. The colours pop, especially on the blue buffet table I had set up. The bright orange of the salmon roe, the wonderful fresh green chive and the white pop of cream cheese. They are so preeeeety!

And so yummy!!! The caviar adds a salty hit to the smooth cream cheese. And a little goes a long way. Making these Mini Savory Cheesecakes a cost effective yet elegant bite.

They would be perfect for a Christmas canapé or for New Years Eve.

I like to use salmon roe for these Savory Cheesecakes with caviar, as the colour is so beautiful and it is more cost effective.

The amount you add is quite flexible. I add 4 tablespoons and that is enough to fleck the mixture with the bright orange salty jewels.

If you have plenty then you might like to garnish the top with some extra caviar. Or add a snip of chives to the top.
