Surprise Sandwich Loaf



  1. Divide the cheese into three portions, and leave one plain.
  2. Cream one-third of the cheese with the chopped prawns, butter and a few drops of anchovy essence, seasoning to taste, a little pink colouring and a little milk.
  3. Reserve one or two sprigs of watercress for garnish, chop the rest finely and mix with another one-third of the cheese, then colour this a pale green.
  4. Cream the remaining portion of cheese with a little seasoning and milk until fairly soft.
  5. Remove the crusts from the loaf, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices.
  6. Spread one slice of bread thickly with the prawn filling, spread the watercress filling on a second slice, and place on top of the prawn-covered slice.
  7. Place another slice of bread on top, repeat until all the slices are used, press lightly, and leave in a cool place until firm.
  8. Cover the whole loaf with the plain cheese, as though icing a cake.
  9. Pipe with small stars of cream cheese, and decorate with radish concertinas and cucumber diamonds.
  10. Garnish the serving dish with some small lettuce leaves and the remaining sprigs of watercress.
  11. To serve the loaf, cut it downwards into slices.
  12. Any other savoury fillings may be used instead of those given, provided they contrast well with each other.
