A sinfully delicious cheese sandwich that is battered and fried. A favorite for adults and kids. This sandwich is great served with French fries and ketchup. Try dipping the sandwich into the ketchup, too. YUM!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 quart oil for frying
- 4 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 4 slices white bread
- 4 slices Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups dry bread crumbs
Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Spread one teaspoon of mayonnaise onto each slice of bread. Place 2 pieces of cheese onto one slice of bread, then top with the other side of bread. The mayonnaise should be on the inside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Place the bread crumbs into another dish. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, then coat with bread crumbs.
One at a time, immerse the sandwiches in the preheated oil. Fry until the cheese is melted, and the crust is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with the other sandwich. Place on paper towel to absorb excess oil before serving.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
