I got this recipe from a Culinary Arts Institute cookbook. Similar to stuffed eggs, it makes a delicate, elegant AND economical appetizer.
This is a welcome addition to a buffet or appetizer tray.
Can be made ahead.

6
hard-cooked eggs, sliced in 5 - 6 pieces
30 small
rounds of buttered bread
1 pkg
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp
mayonnaise
1 tsp
prepared mustard
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
vinegar
1 jar(s)
pimento strips, drained (2 oz)
watercress

Step-By-Step

1Remove yolks from hard-cooked eggs; place yolks and rounded egg ends in a small sieve placed over a bowl.

Put one sliced egg white ring on each bread round.

2Sieve yolks and egg ends into bowl. Mix sieved eggs, cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and vinegar. Beat til smooth.

3With pastry bag (or sandwich bag with corner snipped off, or with spoon) fill each white ring with yolk mixture. Garnish with pimento strip and watercress.

4*It helps in picking up each egg slice if you put a paper cupcake wrapper (holder? - what are those things called?) under each canape.
