Egg and smoked chicken ribbons

  • Meal Type

  • Courses


Nothing says high tea like a little delicate sandwich. You can use many different fillings. Remember that a generous amount of butter will keep them soft and flavourful, and prevent them drying out.

Makes 12 ribbon sandwiches
  • 12 slices white sandwich bread
  • 3 eggs, boiled and peeled
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • 2 tbsp creamy mayonnaise
  • 50g butter, softened
  • ½ cup hummus
  • 150g smoked shaved chicken
  • 1 cup microgreens

1 Combine eggs, celery salt and mayonnaise, and mash together until smooth. Lay out four bread slices and generously spread with egg mixture. Top with another slice of bread and spread with butter. Arrange the slices of chicken over butter and then spread with hummus. Sprinkle over mircogreens. Butter remaining bread slices and sandwich on top of the greens.

2 Stack the sandwiches in a container and cover with clingfilm. Chill until required. To serve, cut off outside crusts to make neat squares, then cut each layered sandwich into 3 ribbons.
