I have fond memories of Chicken Cordon Bleu.
I think it might have been the first “meal” that I ever cooked. I put meal into quotation marks, because I really mean this was the first food that I pulled from the freezer and re-heated…all by myself.
I like these little frozen chicken cordon bleus that my mom always had on hand.
They were good, filling and easy to prepare for myself. I remember enjoying the flavor combinations – the rich sauce and cheese, with the ham chunks, all wrapped up in a lightly coated chicken breast. So yummy!
Fast forward to today…while I don’t keep those in our freezer now, I do like to bring those flavors back into the kitchen every now and again. And I did so recently with this grilled cheese…
I didn’t go “full stop” with a sauce…but decided that adding the mustard to the bread slices, combined with the melty Swiss cheese would be enough. And it is.
This is just a lovely sandwich…and not any harder to put onto the dinner table that a regular grilled cheese. You just need a few extra ingredients!
Hope you enjoy this one!!!
