Served with a Strawberry-Habanero jam 

 White bread with Honey-Dijon mustard, strawberries, smoked gouda cheese, turkey and ham dipped in egg batter and grilled golden brown. Served with a side of strawberry-habanero jam

    2/3 cup water
    1 small egg
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon white pepper
    2/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoon honey-Dijon mustard 
8 strawberries hulled and cut in half 
8 slices white bread
4 slices roasted cooked turkey (1 ounce each sandwich)
4 slices smoked
Gouda cheese  (1 ounce each sandwich)
4 slices smoked ham (1 ounce each sandwich)
vegetable oil, for frying


    • confectioners' sugar, for dusting

BATTER: Place water, egg, salt, and pepper 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.
SANDWICHES: Make 4 sandwiches,spread bread with honey-Dijon then  putting cheese  & strawberries between ham and turkey. Cut into fourths and put a toothpick through each quarter.
Heat about 6" of oil to 340 degrees in a fryer. Dip sandwiches in batter to cover all surfaces. Deep fry sandwiches until golden brown, turning as needed. An alternate way of frying it to put approximately 1/4" oil in a large pan and fry the sandwiches on both sides until crispy and brown.
Remove from oil and take out toothpicks. Drain on paper towel to remove excess oil. Sprinkle sandwiches with confectioners' sugar. Serve with stawberry-habbanero jam
