  • Prepare a bowl of cold water. Remove eggs from hot water; submerge in cold water. Let eggs stand 5 minutes. Remove from water, and remove shells.

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place bread on a baking sheet; toast until golden brown.

  • Slice eggs lengthwise; cover loosely with plastic wrap. Spread 1 teaspoon caviar on each piece of toast, top with half an egg, and garnish with 1/4 teaspoon caviar. Serve.

Cook's Notes

Quail eggs can be found at good poultry markets or counters. Choupique caviar comes from the bowfin fish, native to Louisiana.
