How to Make CHEESE FRENCHIES..... Famous 1960 Recipe
- 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.
- 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.
