Monte Cristos from Disneyland

Here is a fabulous recipe that's COMPLETELY FAT FREE *wink*wink*
It was supposedly distributed to Disneyland Annual Passholders a while back. (we found it from one of those said passholders on the internet)

1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cups water
1 egg

(mix dry ingredients then add egg and water, then set aside)

Slice of turkey (we usually choose an oven roasted turkey)
Slice of ham (we LOVE the Tavern Ham from Walmart of all places)
Slice of Swiss cheese (the recipe calls for 1 ounce portions of meat and cheese. you can play with it to see how much you like)
2 slices egg bread (we never found that kind of bread, buy the one called Bakers Delight or something like that)

Make sandwiches with turkey, then cheese, then ham. Cut sandwich in quarters using toothpicks to hold the sandwich together
Dip sandwiches into batter then fry in canola oil (360 degrees) until golden brown.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with blackberry jam. (we like the Knotts brand seedless blackberry)
