4 Caviar Cream Cheese Recipes

Smoked Trout & Dill, Smoked Trout & Pepper, Salmon & Lemon, Smokin' Hot Whitefish & Truffle

Caviar Star's once popular caviar cream cheeses can no longer be found on the shelves of retail markets and grocers such as Whole Foods, which for some consumers is quite disappointing. Although this product is not currently being produced in-house, we want to share our recipes with customers so they can make their own caviar cream cheese at home.

These incredibly flavorful, fluffy-textured, whipped cream cheeses are ideal for spreading on bagels, English muffins and others breakfast toasts, or for making specialty hors d'oeuvres and appetizers. When heated up they are perfect dip for chips, crackers and pretzels.

The following recipes are for the smallest batch size (approximately 8 ounces) of our own Caviar Cream Cheese. This smaller recipe can be mixed by hand, but using an electric hand or stand mixer makes the process a lot easier, especially when doubling the recipe to make 1 lb total. 


Smoked Rainbow Trout & DillIngredients:

cream cheese 6 oz 
liquid smoke 1 tsp 
dry organic dill 1 tsp 
rainbow trout caviar
2 oz 
  1. Soften your cream cheese first. 10 to 20 minutes in the oven on the lowest temp will do the trick.
  2. Cut the cream cheese block into four pieces before putting all of it into a mixing bowl/mixer.
  3. Mix slowly (speed 1 for electric mixers) for a minute. After initial mixing, use a spatula to get excess cream cheese from the mixer's paddle and the sides of the bowl. Mix the cream cheese slightly more vigorously (speed 2) for a couple of minutes to soften it further.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again to collect and center all the cream cheese. Add liquid smoke and dry organic dill. Mix again (speed 2) for one more minute.
  5. Add the trout caviar and mix carefully (speed 1) for about 20 seconds.
  6. Scrape the bowl sides and mixer paddle with a spatula one more time while lightly stirring the caviar cream cheese by hand until the roe is evenly distributed. Store in plastic Tupperware or other sealable containers, keeping the product in the fridge before and after enjoying it.

salmon caviar  2 oz
