Bennigan's Monte Cristo Sandwich
from CopyKat Recipes
9 Slices Wheat Bread (we used white and you need to use the thin sliced , not thick bread)
3 Slices Turkey
3 Slices Ham
3 Slices American Cheese
3 Slices Swiss Cheese
1 to 1 1/4 cup Water
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1 1/2 cup Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
Vegetable Oil (for deep frying)
Place turkey and Swiss cheese on one slice of bread and ham and American cheese on another slice of bread. Place third slice in-between and secure the triple decker sandwich in the corners with tooth picks.
Place egg in mixing bowl, add water and beat together. Add salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder. Beat batter until smooth.
Dip sandwich in batter and carefully cover all the sides and surface. Carefully place in hot oil (pan needs to be high enough so that the oil will cover the sandwich half-way up) and fry until golden on each side. When sandwich has turned a warm gold color remove from hot oil and place on paper towel. Let cool for a few minutes before removing the tooth picks. And before serving slice into fourths and sprinkle with powder sugar.
Serve with raspberry preserves.
