Curried Egg and Chive Sandwiches

Spring racing carnival is all about the beautiful hats and champagne lunches. And what would a fancy lunch be without adorable finger sandwiches?

Sure, it’s not the sort of thing you make every day but it’s certainly fun for a treat. Cucumber is a favourite with the Queen, most people can’t pass up chicken and let’s not forget the Aussie touch: curried egg.

Recently we told you that Ziggys favourite potted herb company, The Little Fresh Group, would be stocking CHIVES! Snip some fresh chives into your egg sandwich for a burst of flavour and to break up the creamy egg.

Here’s a recipe for you to try.

Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled eggs, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 3/4 cup good quality whole egg mayonnaise (or aioli)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh white bread

Method

  1. Combine the mashed egg with mayonnaise and curry powder.
  2. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Add chives and stir.
  4. Spread over slices of bread to make sandwiches.
  5. Remove crusts and slice into thin strips… if you’re feeling fancy!
