The larger the toothpicks the better for this! I use seasoned salt when I made this but white salt is fine!
- oil, for deep-frying
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 1 large egg
- 2⁄3 cup flour
- 1 3⁄4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 8 slices white bread
- 4 slices swiss cheese
- 4 slices turkey
- 4 slices cooked ham
- black pepper (I use about 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper)
- confectioners' sugar, for dusting
- Heat about 5 inches oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees.
- While the oil is heating prepare the batter; in a medium bowl whisk together the egg and water.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; whisk into the egg mixture until smooth; set aside and chill.
- To assemble the sandwiches; place one slice of turkey one one slice of bread, then a slice of ham on an other slice of bread, then "sandwich" them with a slice of Swiss cheese in the middle.
- Cut the sandwich into quarters then secure with toothpicks.
- Dip each sandwich quarter into the batter so that all the sides are coated.
- Deep-fry in hot oil until golden brown on all sides.
- Remove the toothpicks and arrange on a serving tray.
- Dust with confectioners sugar just before serving.
I have been on the hunt for what appears to be the reasonable way to prepare this for my husband. This is the ONLY recipe that sounds right! I will try this and get back to you. Thank You.
This was a great from scratch version. I used pretty thick slices of bread and had to double the amount of coating. I also used some dijon mustard, per our taste. Great recipe!!!!!
