Do you like grilled cheese? Ok, we admit, that’s like asking if you like to breathe. OF COURSE you like grilled cheese. Grilled cheese with tomato soup was the backbone of many an American childhood. Well, a Cheese Frenchee is a grilled cheese only kicked up about
thirteen notches. Purportedly invented by a drive-in restaurant chain called Kings Food Host in Omaha, Nebraska, this lunch-time marvel is a fried grilled cheese. The wonderful texture is thanks to the sandwich being dipped first in an egg/milk mixture, and then
corn flake crumbs. Kings used American cheese, but you can use whatever type of cheese you like, as long as it melts well. Grilled cheese just died and went to heaven.
If you are visiting Omaha, check out the Joslyn Castle. Built at the turn of the century for socialites George and Sarah Joslyn, this stunning Scottish baronial mansion once housed a bowling alley and later served as headquarters for Omaha Public Schools.
Ingredients Instructions Assemble the cheese sandwiches. In a dish or shallow bowl, beat egg with splash of milk. In a separate dish, place corn flake crumbs. Dip sandwich in egg mixture, coating both sides of the bread. Dip in corn flake crumbs, again coating both sides of bread. Repeat with other sandwich. Heat oil in a skillet to 350 degrees. Fry sandwiches 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
