Fondly remembering those Cheese Frenchies

CHEESE FRENCHIES: Back in the late 1960s or early 1970s there was a restaurant down the street on Nevada from Palmer High School named Kings Host. Does anyone have the recipe for the Cheese Frenchies they used to serve?
- Shirley Tilkens

ANSWER: Since King’s Food Host is no longer around, we turned to several Internet sites that deal with restaurant recipes. There were several great discussions about how much people loved the “Frenchies” at King’s across the country, including Cheese Frenchies, Tuna Frenchies and even Hot Dog Frenchies.

From recipelink.com is this version:

KING’S FOOD HOST’S CHEESE FRENCHIES
6 slices white bread
6 slices American cheese
Mayonnaise
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
Kellogg’s Corn Flake crumbs
Oil for deep fat frying

Recipe note: “American cheese is a must. Do not use any other kind, as it melts too easily.

Procedure:
1. Make 3 sandwiches, using 2 slices of American Cheese per sandwich. Spread mayonnaise on bread slices. Cut sandwiches into triangles.
2. Combine egg, milk, flour and salt. Dip the triangle sandwiches into egg mixture, and coat with corn flake crumbs.
3. Fry in deep fat at 375 degrees until golden.

Yummy... just like I remember as a kid. King's also served a mean Navy Bean Soup, but I've never got the combination quite right.
