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
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

Step-By-Step

1For 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.
2For batter,combine beaten egg, milk,salt and flour.
Dip each triangle in batter, then dip in crushed cornflakes as needed.
3Heat 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!
4Variation: 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.
