Downton Abbey Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches

Three years ago I was in London, working Grey Poupon (DowntonAbbeyKitchens.com). We stayed at The Ritz London, and visited Bampton and Highclere Castle!  With the 6th and final season of Downton Abbey on PBS, this was such an excitng trip!

Having tea with The Lady, we enjoyed these Downton Abbey Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches!

Bampton

Not only did we have tea and tour the castle, we also visited the lovely town of Bampton, so quaint and quiet, you couldn’t hear a pin drop! It’s called the “Downton Mile” and the walk takes you down along the streets, to Downton’s Cottage, the hospital (Bampton’s library), ending at the church.

Bampton & Highclere Castle

We then drove from Bampton, about 30 miles out through the countryside, arriving at the Highclere Castle!

The rain stopped, with a small window period of sunlight, we couldn’t believe that we were actually here!

My friends on the trip were Lori (RecipeGirl), Adrianna (A Cozy Kitchen), and Stephanie (I am a Food Blog).

Now let’s take a tour through the castle.

What I love about “tea” is the relaxation, slowing of life, and conversation, something we need more of in our busy lives!

Today I’m sharing a simple Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches recipe, made with Grey Poupon mustard.

EASY Downton Abbey Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches

The “tea” menu can include your favorite hot tea, sandwiches with the crust removed, and scones with fruity jam and cream.

Here are a few classic finger sandwich ideas. You can cut the bread in different shapes, rectangles, circles, or triangles. One of my favorite combinations is cream cheese, turkey and apple.

As far as scones, remember that they are best warm from the oven. Here’s my basic blueberry scone recipe.

Serve with clotted cream or whipped mascarpone cheese. YUM!

Be sure to use a good jam with the cream mixture. I bought some pear jelly at Highclere Castle!

I know this trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, one that I’ll cherish in my heart forever. :) 

This trip was paid for by Grey Poupon (Kraft Foods), but all opinions are my own. More posts on my stay in London, HERE.
