I can't believe I forgot to review these! I made this for as a snack for football game. The whole plate was gone in a matter of minutes! I used a multigrain bread with nuts and seeds. This has become one of my favorite little sandwiches!

  1. Mix together the cream cheese and the mustard and season with salt and pepper. Add extra mustard for a more fiery flavour; however, it's probably best to have a mild mustard flavour for afternoon tea.
  2. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the 8 slices of bread and place the ham on top of Divide the watercress into small sprigs and place on top.
  3. Finish with the remaining slices of bread, trim off the crusts and cut each into 3 fingers. Serve on a pretty plate with some extra sprigs of watercress.
