    Daydream's Note:

    Just like the dainty sandwiches served at Harrods! For a less traditional tea sandwich, you can use pumpernickel, rye or sourdough bread, thinly sliced. For a visual treat, garnish the patter of sandwiches with edible flowers such as pansies or nasturtiums, along with the watercress.

      Very good; guess I'm just not a big fan of watercress. For those who do, expect it gives egg salad a nice little bite that they'd like.

      I made these for a recent Zaar get-together and these were excellent. I didn't use watercress, but mustard cress instead. I also skipped the step of coating the outsides with the mayonnaise and parsley. I used fresh chives and cress, removing the crusts and cutting them neatly into quarters with my electric knife.

      I wish I had listened to my instincts and used "dainty lady" type bread instead of hamburger buns for these sanwiches. I used a good quality whole grain bun baked in town, but I wanted more eggy taste, not bread taste. But I was able to used fresh chives and fresh watercress from my herb garden! I did not want the watercress competing with the Tabasco so I omitted the Tabasco. Also used Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe #855 which now means from this day forward I can never use the bottled, store bought mayo garbage for these sandwiches ever. We both liked the fresh parlsey dip touch for the grande finale. cg ;)
