50 years ago these were very popular,at a few restaurants mainly in the midwesten states. Does any one remember The Kings Restaurants?
I enjoyed them years ago, in Nebraska, driving on the way to Cheyenne,Wy.
These are to die for!
This great recipe comes to you straight(from the horses mouth) via an ex-cook that worked at Kings. They were really made from scratch at KINGS.
I hope you will try and enjoy this blast from the past..them golden, crispy, hot gooey sandwiches.
I wonder if I can have them on my Heart Healthy Diet????? LOL!

Ingredients

mayonnaise

white bread ..or try whole wheat bread
6 slice

** batter recipe below:
1 large
egg
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
