High tea is an English meal which became popular among laborers during 1600s. Initially, it was referred to a traditional meal comprising of meat, bread, cheese, crackers, desserts like cake. But slowly its definition in non-UK countries changed to something that’s served with lighter meal like sandwiches, scones, cookies,pastries or cakes.
Since S & I can’t attend this, we decided to send our wishes and love by contributing a dish for that evening. It is a tasty egg sandwich made with a creamy mixture of dijon mustard and mayonnaise. The soft moist bread and the chunks of boiled eggs leaves a simple taste on every bite. The mild flavor of the chives and pepper corns blends beautifully with the creamy mixture.
It rained a bit today and this sandwich is a perfect one for this weather. Hot tea and few slices of this bread is a true delight for anyone. I added Aloo bhujjia along with the spread for a crunchy twist and I enjoyed them with a cup of hot Indian chai.
When Meeta of Whats for lunch honey? and Aparna of My diverse kitchen announced the theme as High Tea Treats , I am convinced that this post is a perfect entry for their event.
Mix the eggs, chives, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, ketchup, salt and pepper. Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature.
Slice the bread in the centre so that they form two small rectangles. This makes it easier to eat. Spread the above mixture over the bread and serve.
