1 onion, skinned and finely chopped
3 sticks celery, cleaned and chopped
2 tbsp (25 g) 1 oz butter
3 slices brown bread, crusts removed
4 oz (100 g) peeled prawns

4. Beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over the bread mixture.
5. Bake in the oven at 200°C (400°F) mark 6 for 35-40 minutes. Serve hot, garnished with parsley and remaining prawns.
