Monte Cristo

2 slices white or egg sliced bread, 1/2" thick
1.5 oz. turkey, sliced
1.5 oz. ham, sliced
1 oz. Swiss cheese (one slice)
1.5 oz. blackberry preserves
3 cups canola Oil

3 2/3 cups water
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 drops yellow food coloring

Mix egg and water in a mixing bowl, using a wire whip. Add all
dry ingredients and scrape the bowl to ensure that the batter is
mixed thoroughly. Add food coloring and continue to mix for 20
minutes until smooth (coloring may be omitted if desired). On a
slice of bread, arrange: Turkey, Ham, and cheese, covering all of
the slices evenly. Place the second slice on top and cut in half
diagonally. In a 10" pan, heat oil to 350 degrees. Dip one half
of the sandwich in batter, allowing excess to drain, and very
carefully place in the oil. Repeat the same for the other half of
sandwich. Cook them for six minutes on one side. Turn over and
cook for four minutes on the other side. Place each sandwich on
a paper towel, on a plate, in a warm oven to hold until all four
are complete. Serve with Blackberry preserves and sprinkle sandwich
with powdered sugar.
