English Tea Sandwiches
- 4 large eggs, hard-cooked and peeled
- ¼ cup plain butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
- ½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest, finely grated
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- salt, ground black pepper and smoked paprika, to taste
- 10 slices white bread, crusts trimmed
- 2/3 cup fresh watercress, coarsely chopped
- Coarsely chop the eggs. Add softened butter. Using a potato masher, mash together eggs and butter until reduced to a coarse meal. Add chives, basil, lemon zest, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix until all ingredients are blended together.
- Spread egg-butter mixture on one side of each bread slice. Place one buttered slice of bread on a plate. Top with 2 to 3 teaspoons chopped watercress. Cover with another slice, butter-side down and press lightly to adhere. Cut each sandwich diagonally to make 4 small triangles. Serve immediately.
- If desired, top watercress with a teaspoon of chopped fresh mint leaves before covering with the other bread slice. Alternately, mix the chopped mint leaves into the egg-butter mixture. Follow the rest of the steps according to the recipe.
