Author Notes

On Mother’s Day the focus should be on crafting a fun and low stress day, but sometimes that’s easier said than done! To help, we came up with a mostly make ahead English inspired high tea. The tea filling can be made before and because there is no cooking the day of, it’s a perfect way for the kids to help out. Speaking of kids, if you’re dealing with picky eaters, make some PB&Js to add to the serving platter so everyone will be happy!
These sandwich pair perfectly with mom’s favorite tea and you can even add some sparkling wine or gin and tonics to continue the English high tea vibes!
Side note: for this we included cutting off the crusts to keep things traditional, but if you’re looking to make life easier, feel free to leave them on.
While this sounds super fancy, it’s actually a very easy way to dress up your egg salad. The decadent taste of truffle elevates this beyond everyday fare. —SP
