  • Combine the boiled prawns with mayonnaise, chopped spring onions, grated cheese, thick cream, salt, pepper and mustard to taste (if the mixture looks dry, add more cream).
  • Cut the bread slices into squares. Pile prawn mixture on each square. Sprinkle a little more grated cheese on top.
  • Bake in a very hot oven till squares are golden-brown and bubbly.
  • Serve hot decorated with parsley.
