I skipped the extra layer of bread in the middle only because I'm low on bread until grocery day. I just layered the meat and cheese like I would any other sandwich. I added a little Frank's Hot Sauce to the egg wash and fried these in a little butter in the cast iron skillet. Frying them in the cast iron skillet gave it a wonderful crust. To say that my family liked these would be an understatement. My littlest can't stop talking about it.


I leave the crust on the bread. Also, I only use turkey if I happen to have it. I also put just a little bit of dijon mustard on the bread. These turn out really good and very crunchy!


very good, but very time consuming IMO
