Recipe by r_mess
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.

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.
- 6 slices American cheese
- 6 slices white bread
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 3⁄4 cup flour
