This one is a keeper for me. I admit I tweaked it, but I don't eat meat so.. lol What I did was saute up a bag of morning star chicken strips and pile those in the middle of each square. Used soy ham, and regular provolone. Next time I would use a whole 8oz package of mushrooms.and add a bit of garlic. Those are the only "normal" changes I might suggest. I'd like to try this baked as one large calzone (lay one sheet of pastry down, cover with chicken strips etc. Then top with the other pastry, seal, cook and cut into squares.) Chicken cordon bleu was one of my favorites before I became a vegetarian. I'd been trying to find a way to Vegetize it. Never would have thought of puff pastry! Thanks so much!
