Cheese Frenchies

Retro | May 29, 200002:30 PM     38

One of my favorite Midwestern treats was the Cheese Frenchie, a disgustingly artery-clogging (meaning: wonderful!) sandwich.
It consisted of two slices of American cheese, slathered with mayo and placed between three slices of white bread, dipped into batter and deep-fried. The outside coating was crunchy, and the cheese was melted (and would easily burn the corners of your mouth as you bit into it, so watch out!)
I used to get them at King's Food Host in Cedar Rapids, but when they closed in the early 70's, I didn't see them again - until the early 90's, when the Dill Pickle chain in CR sold them again. But those are gone now, too.
Anyone else remember these, or know of any other locations where they used to (or still do) exist?
P.S.) There was also a Tuna Frenchie, but I never went for those.
