Devilled eggs with a twist are the perfect Christmas Party Food. When the eggs are cold, shell them and slice in half lengthways. Sieve the yolks into a bowl, add the soft butter and relish and mix well. Taste the mixture – it may need a little seasoning. Fill into a piping bag with a 2.5cm (1in) star nozzle.

Pipe a rosette of the mixture into each egg white. Garnish with the watercress or chervil. Serve as a starter on a bed of salad leaves. Alternatively, serve as part of a selection of stuffed eggs.
