Ingredients

1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar for dusting

4 slices ham

8 slices white bread

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

4 slices turkey

4 slices Swiss cheese

2/3 cup water

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1 quart oil for frying, or as needed

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Steps

Step 1

Heat 5 inches of oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). While oil is heating, make the batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; whisk into the egg mixture until smooth. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Step 2

Assemble sandwiches by placing one slice of turkey on one slice of bread, a slice of ham on another, then sandwich them with the Swiss cheese in the middle. Cut sandwiches into quarters, and secure with toothpicks.

Step 3

Dip each sandwich quarter in the batter so that all sides are coated. Deep fry in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides. Remove toothpicks and arrange on a serving tray. Dust with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
