Cheese Frenchee

Serves 1


2 slices thick-sliced bread (such as Texas toast)
2-3 slices American or cheddar cheese
4 teaspoons mayonnaise
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cornflakes, crushed
Canola or vegetable oil, for frying


Step 1: Assemble - Spread 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread. Then, on one piece of bread, place a slice of cheese on top of the mayonnaise. Top with the other slice of bread to make a sandwich.

Step 2: Trim - Using a sharp knife, trim the crusts off the sandwich on all sides. Then, cut in half diagonally so you have two triangle-shaped halves. Set aside.

Fill a deep fryer or Dutch oven with 2-3 inches of oil and preheat to 350F.

Step 3: Mix and Prep - While the oil preheats, whisk together the egg, flour, milk and salt until a smooth batter forms. If the batter seems too heavy, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time. In a second shallow bowl, add the crushed cornflakes.

Step 4: Dip - Taking half of the sandwich, dip the triangle into the batter, evenly coating all sides.

Step 5: Coat - Next, dredge the batter-covered sandwich in the cornflakes, pressing the crumbs gently onto all sides of the sandwich.

Step 6: Fry - Carefully lower one half of the sandwich into the hot oil. Deep fry the sandwich until golden and crisp on all sides, about 3-4 minutes. Remove to a wire cooling rack over a baking sheet to cool. Repeat with the second half of the sandwich.

Step 7: - Serve warm while the cheese is still melty and gooey. Enjoy!

TIPS: Serve with a cup of tomato soup or a side of fries.
