Need help with this sandwich....

Over the years, I've come to really enjoy a sandwich that I've only had twice in my life. Only two restaurants have carried it.

Here's what it is:

It's a simple club sandwich but they do something with the bread in form of breading it with graham cracker crumbs and deep frying it.

One restaurant describes it as: "A graham cracker encased Triple Decker club made with ham, turkey, cheese and mayo, deep fried and served"

That was from an independant resturant near Duluth, MN.

Grandma's had the exact same thing and they called it "The Full Monty"

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and know where to get a recipe for this amazing sandwich?

I have never heard of it but, wow does it sound interesting. Would love to know if you find it and how it's done so that the graham doesn't fall off.

doesn't sound like you need a recipe, just dip it (the sandwich, held together with a couple of toothpicks) in egg then into the crumbs and fry. I've never heard of it, but have heard of it done with crushed potato chips. (Monte Cristo)

LOL I've never heard of the potato chips. The cristos I've had have just been dipped in egg and deep fried.

Is it just the bread or the full sammy that is dipped?

See, I'm not sure. From the wording of the original post, they state that its a club sammy with something different done to the bread. However, they go on to quote a restaurant description of "deep fried".

If its just the bread then it would seem to be a style of french toast used as sammy bread but if its the whole thing then its just a variation of a Monty.

I would be intruiged by the french toast style cold club sammy but I would avoid the full Monty.
