Stack one slice each of turkey, cheese, and ham, in that order, onto bread and top each sandwich with a second slice of bread. Cut sandwiches in half and put a toothpick in each half to hold sandwiches together.

In a large pot, heat about 3 inches of oil over medium-high heat to 360°F. Working in batches, dip each sandwich half in batter and fry in hot oil until golden, about 3 minutes on each side.
