Ingredients

8 to 12 cups oil for deep frying

SANDWICH:

2 Slice low carb bread
1 Slice swiss cheese
3 ozs Deli turkey, sliced
1 Slice American cheese
3 ozs Deli ham, sliced


BATTER:

2 Egg yolks
1 C Ice water
1 C Almond flour
2 t Baking soda

ON TOP:

Splenda

ON THE SIDE:

Low carb raspberry preserves

Directions

Heat oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 375F degrees. You will need the oil to be at least 4 inches deep.



Make the sandwich by arranging the slice of swiss cheese on a piece of low carb bread. Arrange the turkey on the swiss. Place the slice of american cheese on the turkey. Arrannge the ham slices next on the american cheese. Place another slice of bread to top off the sandwich. Make sure the meat/cheese is not hanging over the edges of the sandwich. Press down on the sandwich with your hand to flatten it a bit.



Make the batter by beating the egg yolks. Measure almond flour and baking soda into a sifter and sift the mixture into the ice water and egg yolk. Stir with a large spoon, but don't mixt it too well. You should have many visible lumps in the batter.



Slice the sandwich in half from corner to corner. Dip one half of the sandwich into the batter while holding it together with your fingers (the batter will hold the sandwich together in the shortening). Coat the sandwich well, but let any excess batter fall off. Drop the battered sandwich half into the hot oil. If your pan or fryer can fit the other half of sandwish batter that piece and drop into the fryer as well. Fry the sandwich for 6 to 8 minutes, turning it over halfway through cooking time. It should be golden brown when done.



Remove the sandwich halves to paper towels to drain. When you can touch the sandwich, slice each half in half, making 4 pieces. Dust the sandwich lightly with splenda and serve it with a small dish of the low carb raspberry preserves for dipping.
