Dipwiches, American

Bridgford Bologna For The Finest Lunch Meats - 1957

Dipwiches Will Delight All

Just what is a dipwitch? A dipwich is a sandwich filled with canned meat and cheese then dipped in batter and browned until golden. We make our batter with easy to use, economical evaporated milk. For hearty dipwiches for man and boy proceed like this:

  • 1 can (12 ounces) luncheon meat
  • 16 slices bread
  • 8 slices processed American cheese
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
Preparation Instructions

Cut lunchron meat Into 8 lengthwise slices. Place one slice on each of 8 bread slices. Top with cheese and remaining bread slices. In a shallow pan, beat together evaporated milk, eggs and mustard. Dip each sandwich into this mixture, turning to coat both sides. Brown on both sides in small amount of butter in skillet. Serve hot. Makes 8 sandwiches.
