The Tea Party

These classic tea party sandwiches were made in aid of Mother’s day. It’s bizarre how such tiny sandwiches can make one feel so civilised but the key benefit in my eyes is getting to try multiple sandwiches in one sitting (WIN!). These sandwiches are so simple to make and an instant crowd pleaser.

Prawn Marie Rose
1. Defrost the prawns either over night or instantly by running them under the cold water tap for 10 minutes in a sieve and a bowl underneath so the water can overflow.
2. Mix together all remaining ingredients in a bowl.
3. Once the prawns have defrosted fully, add the sauce a few tablespoons at a time until you have the sauce to prawn ratio that you desire.

Coronation Chicken
1. Mix all ingredients together. BOOM DONE.

Egg Mayonnaise
1. Mash the boiled eggs with the back of a fork until broken down into small chunks.
2. Mix in the mayonnaise.
3. Place the tomato slices down first when assembling the filling for your sandwich, followed by the egg mayonnaise mix and lastly with a sprinkling of cress.

Salmon & Cucumber
1. Spread the bread with an even layer of cream cheese and top with a couple slices of smoked salmon and the slices of cucumber.
