Egg Salad Sandwich with Avocado

Serves 4

Ingredients:

6 eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise, plus extra, if you like, for spreading
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt, to taste
8 slices whole grain bread, toasted
1 avocado, halved, peeled, seeded and sliced lengthwise
1/2 bunch watercress, stems trimmed
Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Cook the eggs 10 minutes in a saucepan of simmering water to cover. Drain, cool under cold running water, and peel. Roughly mash the eggs in a bowl with the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Spread 4 slices of toast with mayonnaise, if you like. Arrange about 1/4 of the avocado slices on each. Spread each with 1/4 of the egg salad and arrange watercress sprigs on top. Top each sandwich with another slice of toast and serve.
