    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Makes: 4 sandwiches


    6 eggs
    4 tbsp mayonnaise
    1 tsp dijon mustard
    ΒΌ tsp turmeric, plus extra to serve
    8 slices seeded bread
    salted butter, softened
    4 essential Waitrose radishes, finely sliced
    small bunch cress 


    1. Put the eggs in simmering water for 4 minutes, then turn off the heat and let them sit in the water for another 8 minutes (this will stop the whites from becoming rubbery). Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise with the mustard and turmeric; season. Drain the eggs and run under cold water, then peel and slice.

    2. Spread the butter on 4 slices of bread. Spoon the mayo onto the remainder and lay on the egg and radishes. Top with cress, a little turmeric and the buttered bread.
