It's Faturday!

After Maggie D. so generously posted this awesome pic to my Facebook page, I wondered what I would have on my menu if I had a bar/pub...

And while thinking of "bar food", my brain immediately seized on the following recipe. I tried to think of better bar food, but kept coming back to the Granddaddy of Ham and Cheese Sammiches. The Bennigan's Monte Cristo....



6 slices cooked turkey
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices cooked ham
6 slices American cheese
18 slices wheat bread
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cup water
1 large egg, beaten
 oil, for deep frying
powdered sugar
red raspberry jelly


Assemble sandwiches: Bread, turkey, Swiss cheese, bread, ham, American cheese, bread; cut in half diagonally. 

Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together to blend well. Add water to the egg and add to the flour mixture mixing well. Dip each sandwich half into the batter and deep-fry (oil must cover the sandwich) in oil pre-heated to 360 degrees F until golden brown. 

Remove from oil to paper towels. Sprinkle with the powdered sugar. Serve with warm or room temperature jelly, if desired.
