Chive Blini with Caviar and Creme Fraiche

- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted and separated
- 1 teaspoon chives, finely diced
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup creme fraiche

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine flour, egg, milk, 1 tablespoon butter, chives, and salt. Whisk just until ingredients come together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour. Set a medium nonstick pan over low heat and brush with melted butter. Pour approximately 1 teaspoon of the batter into the pan, and repeat leaving some space between pancakes. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes (about 1 to 2 minutes), flip them over with a spatula. Continue cooking for 1 minute more or until the pancakes are golden brown on both sides.
