    Here is a wonderful sandwhich. Keep in mind you can use different cheeses and meats for added variety.

    List of Ingredients

    9 Slices Wheat Bread
    3 Slices Cooked Turkey
    3 Slices Cooked Ham
    3 Slices American Cheese
    3 Slices Swiss Cheese

    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Sugar
    1 1/2 C. Flour
    1 Tbs. Baking Powder
    Vegetable Oil (for deep frying)


    Place turkey and Swiss cheese on one slice of bread and ham and American cheese on another slice of bread. Place third slice in-between and secure the triple decker sandwich in the corners with tooth picks.

    Place egg in mixing bowl, add water and beat together. Add salt,sugar,flour, and baking powder. Beat batter until smooth.
