Nelli's Version Cheese Frenchee

6 Slices Velveeta Cheese (or your favorite brand American slices)
6 slices Vienna bread, or other white bread of your choice.

Whisk together -
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
¾ cup flour
1 tsp salt (Batter should be thick and sticky)

Fine bread crumbs
oil for deep frying

Make three sandwiches: spread a thin layer of mayo one side of each bread slice and top with thin slices cheese. Cut them in half if using Vienna bread (the Vienna bread slices are a little smaller than other types) or into 4 triangles if using other type bread. Dip each sandwich half or quarter in batter, coating it all the way around – this helps keep the cheese from oozing out when frying. Roll in crumbs, coating all the way around. Fry until golden brown. Watch carefully - it only takes a short time for a good crust to form and the cheese to get good and melty. I use a small skillet and fry only one Frenchee at a time.
