Easy Elegant Cordon Bleu
Anyway, this recipe was discovered in some obscure cookbook by three of my students in 1981 or 1982. I still remember who they were: Brian Beesler, Teri Lyn Stark and Wendy Curtis. They made it, I loved it and I've made it ever since. SO easy and always impressive to whoever you have over to dinner. Thanks, Brian, Teri Lyn and Wendy!
THIS RECIPE FOR ONE SERVING. You multiply for however many you want to make.
I serve this with sauteed mushrooms, wild rice, a crossaint or good roll and a spinach salad. SO GOOD!
