  • Stove
  • saucepan


  • Canola or Vegetable Oil
  • Batter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 large egg
  • Sandwiches
  • 4 slices white bread
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • 4 slices turkey lunch meat
  • 4 slices ham lunch meat
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  • 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.
