Hi All, Soooooo…looking forward to a lovely Indian summer!

We got such a good response to Lizzie’s scone recipe in our last Newsletter (thanks for all your emails) here’s another one! Very easy, very delicious, very moreish!

Janie’s Prawn Bites

  • Half cup Hellman’s (REAL) Mayonnaise
  • Half cup of grated dried Parmesan
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic. Mix all together
  • 24’ ish prawns frozen or fresh.

4 slices of crispy toast, remove crusts and cut into 6 squares, spoon a small amount of mix on each square and pop a prawn on top, place under hot grill for 3/4 mins till light golden brown. Tip: extra mix keeps really well in fridge for quickies. Great with nice cold glass of Sauvignon. Enjoy!
