Anchovies can be polarising, but finely chopped and mixed through the eggs they give an unexpected twist to this classic.

- Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil, then boil for 6 minutes. Remove from heat, strain water from the pan and run cold water over the eggs to cool.
- Peel eggs and chop finely. Mix in mayonnaise, anchovy, herbs and salt and pepper, to taste.
- Cut each baguette in half (to make two smaller baguettes), then cut each half-baguette down the middle lengthwise, all the way through. Butter the insides. On the bottom half, place watercress or lettuce and top with egg mixture. Add some extra anchovies on top, if you like
