Preparation time: 10 mins. plus time for eggs to cool
Main cooking utensils: saucepan, cookie cutters

For 6-8 people you need:
2 eggs
6 slices bread
3-4 tablespoons butter
12-oz. can corned beef

tomato or red sweet pepper

c) deviled butter – add pinch curry powder and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce

1. Hard-cook the eggs, allowing 8-10 minutes in boiling water. When they are ready, crack at once and put into cold water – this prevents a dark line forming around the yolk.

2. Cut out the desired shapes in the bread – if the bread is fresh, warm the cookies cutter and the bread will not crumble.

3. Soften the butter slightly, so it spreads without harming the shape of the bread.

4. Cut the corned beef into neat thin slices, then cut into similar shapes to the bread but a little smaller.

5. Arrange the beef on the bread and butter and garnish as show in the picture.

TO SERVE: With cocktails or as a light snack.

TO VARY: Flavor the butter as suggested.

TO STORE: Keep covered with foil or saran wrap in a cool place until ready to serve.
