How to make it

  1. Place the eggs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes for soft centres.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the cheese, mayonnaise and cress (reserving a little cress to sprinkle over).
  3. Spread the cheese mix over the toast and cut into soldiers.
  4. Serve with the boiled eggs.

Try scooping out the egg and spreading it on top of the cheese for a quick sandwich.
