Petite deep fried cheese sandwiches that were served in the King's Food Host restaurants in Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska. I got this recipe from a friend of mine who worked at King's in the 1960's.
- 6 slices American cheese
- 6 slices white bread
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- corn flake crumbs, crushed fine
- oil (for deep frying)
- Prepare 3 sandwiches, using mayonnaise and 2 slices of cheese for each. Cut the crusts off the sandwiches. Cut each sandwich diagonally both ways, making 4 triangles.
- Combine egg, milk, flour and salt.
- Dip each triangle into egg mixture and then coat with the corn flake crumbs.
- Deep fry at 375°F until golden brown.
This was one of my favorite treats from when I was a kid! Going to King's back in the day, was an event. I have made these Cheese Frenchee's and they are as good as I remember. Gooey Cheesy yumminess inside a crunchy crust. These are even better with a slice of ham between the cheese slices, and Velveeta cheese slices are even better than American Cheese IMO, but really you can use any cheese you want. Also, day old bread holds up a little better in the fryer.
Excellent... I did however prefer and used Velveta... ohhh sooo good...
This was also my favorite sandwich groing up as a kid .The onion rings the burgers allgreat but the cheese frenchee was the BOMB !
also they were served with pickle chips.
