Time 10m

Number Of Ingredients 11

mayonnaise
6 slice white bread ..or try whole wheat bread
6 slice american cheese...only!
crushed corn flakes...or soda crackers
oil for cooking
** batter recipe below:
1 large egg
1/2 c milk
1 tsp salt
3/4 c flour
catsup for dipping

Steps:

  • 1. For frenchies...Cut crusts off bread and spread mayonnaise to taste on one side of each bread slice. Place one slice of cheese between two slices of bread. ****NOTE: USE ONLY AMERICAN CHEESE. Cut each sandwich diagonally to make 4 triangles. Best Secret Tip. If you freeze them overnight,the bread asorbs some of the mayonnaise..it helps to firm them up. Try it with and without freezing.. see what you think.
  • 2. For batter,combine beaten egg, milk,salt and flour. Dip each triangle in batter, then dip in crushed cornflakes as needed.
  • 3. Heat oil to 375 degrees, in your fryer. Fry Frenchies untill browned, but not burned. Serve with catsup and a dill pickle on the side. Chow down...and enjoy this special treat from the past!
  • 4. Variation: For Tuna Frenchies, substitute cheese with canned,drained tuna mixed with a wee bit of mayonnaise and salt. The mayonnaise will hold the tuna together. Follow the above recipe. I have made these with canned salmon.. and served hot at a graduation part They looked so pretty on a tray, decorated with parsley sprigs and radish roses.
