  1. 4 large eggs, hard-cooked and peeled
  2. ¼ cup plain butter, softened
  3. 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
  5. ½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest, finely grated
  6. ¼ cup mayonnaise
  7. salt, ground black pepper and smoked paprika, to taste
  8. 10 slices white bread, crusts trimmed
  9. 2/3 cup fresh watercress, coarsely chopped
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  1. 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.
