So carrying on my Mother’s Day Afternoon tea recipes, I am sharing Rare a Roast Beef, Wasabi And Watercress Bagels recipe.

For the carnivores try this modern twist on the original sandwich eaten by the Earl of Sandwich back in 1762.

Who is said to have first put some beef and watercress between two slices of bread so he could eat without interrupting his card game! 

This more sophisticated version with bagels is a perfect teatime treat.
