Stitching & Stewing on Sunday V

Prim Bunnies
Projects this weekend were geared toward Spring and Easter. My OFG Etsy Team is preparing for a Spring Celebration to start March 1st. Keep checking back for more details.



Hubby offered to prepare dinner one night. When we go out to eat, if there's a Monte Cristo Sandwich on the menu, I predict that he'll always order that...So he found a recipe online to make it for us at home.
The Monte Cristo Sandwich
9 slices Wheat Bread
3 slices Cooked Turkey
3 slices Cooked Ham
3 slices American Cheese
3 slices Swiss Cheese
Batter
1 egg
1 - 1 1/4 C. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tbsp. 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. Dip sandwich in batter and carefully cover all the sides and surface. Carefully place in hot oil and fry until golden. When sandwich has turned a warm gold color, remove from hot oil and place on paper towel. Let cool a few minutes before removing the toothpicks. Before serving slice into fourths and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Serve with raspberry preserves. Makes 3 delicious sandwiches.

I wish I was creative enough to do such cute projects. I managed to burn bagels this weekend so cooking isn't my thing either. Thank God for my hubby. (I managed to hide the bagels from him.)
