Total Time 30minutes
Canola or Vegetable Oil
1 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
4slicesturkey lunch meat
4slicesham lunch meat
Fill a medium size saucepan just over 1/4 full with Canola or Vegetable oil. Heat to 375 degrees F.
To prepare the batter, place flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Stir in water and egg, mixing until well combined.
To prepare sandwiches, layer bottom slices of bread with a slice of Swiss cheese, 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of ham and another slice of Swiss Cheese. Close with top slice of bread then cut into fourths. Place a toothpick in each sandwich slice.
Coat all sides of sandwich triangle with batter. I used a spoon to help coat both sides, instead of dipping. Carefully place one sandwich at a time in hot oil. Cook each side until golden brown. Remove and place onto a paper towel lined plate to drain oil. Continue until all have been coated.
Dust warm sandwiches with powdered sugar, cut in half and place onto a serving plate with grapes, a few strawberries and blackberry jam for dipping. Enjoy warm.
