what you need
  • 3 egg yolks, large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups ice water
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 slices Swiss cheese
  • 9 slices extra thin white bread, crust removed
  • 6 slice Oscar Mayer Turkey
  • 3 slices American cheese
  • 6 slices Oscar Mayer Ham
  • Deep fat fryer or large pan
  • Vegetable oil
  • Powdered sugar
  • Raspberry jam
make it
Mix egg yolks and ice water whipping very well with fork. Stir in flour and baking soda. Mixture will be lumpy.

Arrange Swiss cheese on 3 slices of bread, top with 2 slices of turkey on each. Place bread on turkey, top with American cheese and 2 slices of ham on each, ending with slice of bread. Be sure no meat or cheese hanging off sides. Flatten sandwiches with hand by pressing down firmly to flatten slightly.

Then cut sandwiches in half and dip in batter. Let excess batter drip off and fry sandwich in fryer, until golden brown and floats to top of oil about 7 minutes or so. Place as many halves in deep fat fryer as will allow.

When cooked, drain on paper towel. When all pieces are done and cool enough to touch, cut in half and sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with raspberry jam. I serve this with onion rings or fried mushrooms.
Michael's Favorite - This makes 4 servings as this sandwich is very filling. It is a bit of work but worth it.

This is not good cold or reheated in microwave.
