Traditionally in UK they would not have mayonnaisse, thoough I like these. It would just be salted butter mixed with the egg. The recipe correctly states mustard cress, the illustration shows watercress. Both nice but the mustard cress is correct.
Did I say *Cresslicious* ? I did, and it was delicious! I followed this exactly even down to the garden cress - which grows by our stream bed early to mid Spring. I thought, what the heck? Ran home, washed the cress thoroughly in cold water (ice cubes added) and was off to boil eggs. Really perfect, and such a delight to eat on a warm Spring day. I had a couple slices of *Whole Foods* country white bread, which was perfect with this. Reminds me to make some more this was so tasty. Made for *Zaar Stars* April 2009
Simple and delicious! I used whole wheat bread and light mayo. Made for Gimme 5 tag.
Simple, delicious, wonderful. The proportions were right on target, no mayonnaise surplus in evidence. I used Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse style Hearty White bread, but I think Pepperidge Farm's Thin-Sliced White Bread would have been perfect for this. No extra seasonings were needed due to the abundance of watercress I used. In fact, the only drawback was that I could not obtain either baby mustard cress nor garden cress, but could only get the more mature watercress. It would be worth growing my own sprouts!

i really liked these the cress gave it a nice crunch dee
I love egg and cress sandwiches! Unfortunately, it's hard to buy mustard and cress where I live, so I grow my own. It's not hard, but takes about a week, so you have to be prepared. I never cut off the crusts though. Didn't your mother ever tell you to eat your crusts and it'd make your hair go curly? It worked for me!
This is how i make egg salad. Funny how we all have the same stuff in different countries! My hubby blew in and said he was being shipped away for a week so i whipped these up, the cucumber, and some ham sandwiches for him real quick to take! Sorry no crusts removed, he wanted to eat it right away!!
