Ingredients
  • 8 slices of Hawaiian Sweet Bread
  • 8 slices of Sargento┬« Sliced Swiss Cheese
  • 8 slices of Maple Honey Turkey
  • 8 slices of Maple Honey Ham
  • Honey Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Triple Berry Jam
  • Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • Canola Oil
Instructions
  1. Begin by assembling your sandwiches. You will spread a thin layer of mustard on half of the slices of bread and a thin layer of mayonnaise on the other half of the pieces of bread. On top of one piece of bread, layer a slice of swiss cheese, 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of ham, a second slice of swiss cheese and then a piece of bread on top. The ingredients listed above will make 4 sandwiches.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, egg, milk, granulated sugar and cayenne pepper.
  3. In a pan, heat the canola oil to about 365 degrees Fahrenheit or hot enough to fry in.
  4. Dip both sides of your assembled sandwich into the flour mixture (it will be thick) and then fry the sandwich for a few minutes on both sides in the heated canola oil until it is golden brown.
  5. Remove the sandwich and place between two paper towels to remove any excess oil from the sandwich.
  6. Mix and heat a couple of heaping tablespoons with about 1 tablespoon of water to thin the triple berry jam over the stove. (optional)
  7. Cut the sandwich into fourths. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle berry sauce on top of the sandwich (or serve the sauce on the side for dipping).
  8. Eat while warm.
