Source: Disneyland's Blue Bayou Restaurant.


Ingredients:
Currant Jelly Sauce 2/3 cup currant jelly
1 Tbs. water
1 Tbs. half and half

Combine jelly, water and half and half in blender and mix until smooth. Makes about 3/4 cup.

Fruit Compote
Combine your favorite fresh and canned fruits and chill well. Plan about 1/2 cup per person.

Batter

2/3 cup water
1 small egg
1/2 Tsp. salt
1/8 Tsp. white pepper
1/8 yellow food coloring
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 3/4 tea. baking powder

Place water, egg, salt, pepper and food coloring in a bowl and using an electric mixer, mix well at low speed. Add flour and baking powder and mix until batter is smooth. Chill. Makes enough for 4 sandwiches.

Sandwiches
8 slices white bread
4 slices turkey (1 oz. each)
4 slices Swiss cheese
4 slices sliced ham

Make 4 sandwiches, putting cheese between hand and turkey. Cut into fourths and put a toothpick through each quarter.

Final Preparation
Soybean or vegetable oil for frying
Confectioners sugar
Fruit compote
Currant jelly sauce

Heat about 6-inches of oil to 340F in a fryer. Dip sandwiches in batter to cover all surfaces. Deep fry sandwiches until golden brown, turning as needed. Remove from oil, take out toothpicks, sprinkle sandwiches with confectioners' sugar. Serve with fruit compote and currant jelly sauce.

Note: Might be a good idea to double up on the batter recipe as it does not seem to make enough to cover all the sandwiches.
