  • It's been awhile since I made one. I used to cook in a few restaurants that served them. I'm pretty sure it's french toast. ((I put a little vanilla extract in my french toast mix, but you don't have to.)) Fry some ham and turkey on a different pan. I would melt swiss cheese over the ham and turkey once it's cooked. Then put the sandwich together. I worked somewhere that they did the same, but put a hamburger patty in it too. Every diner in our area serves them... maybe they do in your area too?

  • I found this one...it lists a different kind of cheese, but I'm sure you could use cheddar instead.

    http://southernfood.about.com/od/turkeysandwiches/r/bl30107j.htm. In the recipe it gives the directions for making French toast.
