Instructions

  1. Steam the eggs

    • Prepare a steaming rack over a pan of simmering water. Alternatively, bring 3cm of water to a boil in a pan.
    • Place the eggs on the steaming rack, or in the shallow layer of water. Cover the pan and steam the eggs for 12 minutes.
    • Remove from the pan and allow the eggs to cool naturally. Peel them.


  2. Make egg mayonnaise

    • Chop the eggs up finely, and mix in a bowl with the mayonnaise, salt and sugar.
    • If using butter, spread a thin layer on one side of each slice of bread.
    • Sandwich the egg mayonnaise between the bread, buttered side facing in.
