First, I just want to say thank you to all the veterans out there. Veterans day was yesterday and I wanted to make sure that those who have served, along with those who are still serving, know that I thank them from the bottom of my heart for the service they have given to this country. Specifically, I have to give a big thanks to my dad, who served in Vietnam and still continues to serve his country today by being a part of and supporting the Patriot Guard. So thank you to my dad, MY first, true American hero, and to all of you that have given your time and your lives for this country.
Ok, ok.. now on to some food, right?? Most of you may have seen this on a guest post I did over at Food Floozie, but I just HAD to post it here. This is a sandwich that I have adored for a very long time. This is also a sandwich that I cannot find here in Arizona. Actually, I don't know too many people outside of Nebraska that know about cheese frenchees....but that's about to change.
Think deep fried cheese sandwiches..... I know... right? That's what I'm saying!!! This is a treat that MUST be tried at least once. Ok, you don't want to make this a routine meal, but why not splurge? Trust me, it will be worth it!
Adapted from King's Food Host
- Makes 6 triangle sandwiches -
6 slices of white bread
6 slices of American cheese (you can use Velveeta if you want, but no other substitutions)
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 cups finely crushed cornflakes
oil for frying
Make three sandwiches, using 2 slices of American cheese and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise per sandwich. Cut the crusts off the sandwiches and cut each one diagonally, making 2 triangles.
Combine the egg, milk, flour and salt together until it forms a pancake-like batter. Dip the triangles into the egg mixture and coat with cornflake crumbs. Place on a wire rack and continue until all sandwiches are made.
Deep fry in 375 degrees F oil, for about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per side. Carefully remove from oil and allow to cool for just a minute or too. The cheese will be hot and melty, so be careful. Enjoy!
