  • The first thing you want to do is cook the eggs. You can go with hard-boiled or scrambled eggs for this recipe, so it is up to you to decide which one you crave more at that moment.
  • Wash up your vegetables and prepare them for the sandwich. Cut it up into small pieces, finely grate the cabbage, carrots and half of a cucumber. Leave the lettuce to dry a bit before using it for the sandwich. You can also cut it to better fit the size and shape of your bread.
  • During this preparatory stage, you should also cut off the crusts from the bread. This makes the sandwich taste so much better. You can use the crust later to make croutons or breadcrumbs.
  • In a bowl, mix together the vegetables and eggs. Add the mayo/salad cream and mix well until you get a nice and (more or less) even paste.
  • In a different bowl, mash your meat/fish with a fork, add the salad cream or the mayo+ketchup combo and combine until it is smooth. If you are using fish that came in oil, you might want to keep that oil to add to stews or to stir-fry food on it.

  • Now to the interesting part: assembling your sandwich. Take one piece of bread and cover it with the mixture from the first bowl. Put another piece of bread on top, then a slice of lettuce, then another piece of bread covered with the mixture from the second bowl. Cover your growing sandwich tower with yet another piece of bread.
  • Repeat the same process for the remainder of your ingredients. You should end up with two neat stacks of bread and filling. Once you do, take a sharp knife (the sharper the better) and cut the sandwiches into triangles. If the knife is too dull, you will just end up squeezing the filling from the sandwich.
  • Grab the leftover half of the cucumber and cut it into thin slices. Take a few toothpicks, add a few cucumber slices and a cherry tomato on top of each one and stick them into your sandwich triangles. Ta-da! Your dish is ready to be served to your most esteemed guests along with some beverages.
