For the sandwich

2 tbsp garlic butter
3 slices thick-sliced bread
1 slice Swiss cheese
90g thinly sliced ham
1 slice Cheddar cheese
90g thinly sliced cooked chicken or turkey
3 eggs
60ml water
140g panko breadcrumbs (or equivalent breadcrumb)
Oil, for deep-frying
Icing sugar
1) Spread garlic butter on 1 side of each bread slice. Place the Swiss cheese on 1 piece of bread, place the ham on top of the cheese. Cover with another slice of bread, followed by the slice of Cheddar and the chicken or turkey. Place the third piece of bread on top, making sure the meats and cheese are completely tucked inside the bread.

2) Place on a cutting board and slice the sandwich diagonally, then hold together with long wooden picks. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

3) Preheat a deep-fryer to 180C. Beat the eggs and water in a medium shallow bowl. Place the panko breadcrumbs in another shallow bowl.

4) Remove the sandwich from the refrigerator. Dip into the egg wash, drain, and then coat the sandwich completely in the panko breadcrumbs.

5) Fry in hot oil until golden brown (about 45 seconds). Remove from the oil, drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve immediately with raspberry sauce.

For the raspberry sauce:
1) Mix together the raspberry jam and cranberry juice.
