Holiday Cooking: Cheese & Prawn Egg Halves
One last holiday dish! This is an easy one - but I never want to be without egg halves on my Christmas (or Easter) Smorgasbord, so it's absolutely necesary. This year, I added the cheese - I usually just do prawns and mayo. Feel free to add dill if you like it - I really don't, much.
Västerbottens Cheese is a gorgeous sharp, hard cheese from Northern Sweden, and if you absolutely can't find it, try parmesan. It won't be the same, but it'll be good.
Cheese & Prawn Egg Halves
7 egg, hard boiled
500 g prawns, cooked, peeled (I buy mine frozen)
1/2 small red onion
2 tbsp mayonnaise
100 ml Västerbottens Cheese, finely grated
Cut the eggs in half. Set aside 14 large prawns, and coarsely chop the rest. Finely mince the onion and mix with the prawns, mayo and cheese. Dollop this onto the egg halves, and garnish with the reserved prawns.
