Monte Critso

Here's the only thing I would eat at Bennigan's. I'm not sure when was the first time I ate it, but I was hooked from the start.

For each sandwich

3 slices whole wheat bread

3 slices deli turkey

3 sliced smoked ham

3 slices Swiss cheese

3 slices American cheese

Powdered sugar

Raspberry jam

For the batter

1 egg

1 1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

Canola oil for frying

For Sandwich

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

For the Batter

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

For Assembly

Heat a deep fryer to 350℉.

Dip the sandwich in the batter and carefully cover all sides. Carefully place the sandwich in the hot oil and fry until golden. When the sandwich has turned a warm gold color, remove it from the fryer and place it on paper towels. Let the sandwich cool for a few minutes before removing the toothpicks. Before serving, slice the sandwich into fourths and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with raspberry jelly.
