"Cucumber Sandwiches and Egg and Cress Sandwiches: traditional English afternoon tea fare at its absolute best! The mayonnaise in the filling means that there is no need to butter the bread. I have posted this recipe, found on an English website, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. As a child, I absolutely loved these. Posting this really low fat recipe for the tour has reminded me of these delicious sandwich, and inspired me to make them again soon!"

"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! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag."
" 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!!"
