On Sunday nights we eat fun, simple foods. We’ve got some ham lunch meat (locally made) that needs to be used up. So last night I figured we’d do grilled ham and cheese. Always delicious.
Then I remembered that recently Justin asked me to make chicken cordon bleu (I haven’t made it yet by the way). And we had roasted chicken for lunch…with leftovers. So I combined the two and made a chicken cordon bleu grilled cheese.
I didn’t taste it myself, but Justin said it was good 🙂 It sure looked good to me! Plus it’s always fun to have another variation of grilled cheese.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese
2 slices bread of choice
2 slices ham lunch meat (nitrite/nitrate/HFCS/MSG free)
3 slices swiss cheese
1/4 cup shredded cooked chicken
1 – 2 Tbsp. homemade mayo (ours is sweeter like miracle whip)
Spread mayo on both slices of bread. On one slice layer cheese, ham, chicken, cheese, ham, cheese. Top with the other slice of bread.
Butter the bread and cook on a buttered griddle until both sides are golden and the cheese is melted.
Yum, this looks great! I love chicken cordon blue. Have you made the recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking? I’ve made it quite a few times and its always been good.
I have made that recipe a LONG time ago…with the cream soup, etc. It was so salty and kind of gross like that. I should try an updated version. I think the recipe is actually on my blog…one of the first recipes I posted 🙂
