(originally made 1/2012)
I was a little skeptical when I saw this recipe...
take a jelly sandwich, add deli meat and cheese and then dip and fry it
up like french toast. Oh-kay. We're pretty much snowed in today and
the guys wanted pork chops so I figured it was a good day to experiment
with my own meal. I didn't have raspberry jam, I used strawberry.
Not a huge swiss cheese fan, so I used shredded mozzarella. Next
time I'd have some sliced on hand, would make it easier to flip the
sandwich in the egg coating. The flavors all meld together into
something totally delicious. Give it a try!
Pics are rushed, I wanted to eat while it was still warm :)
