I am new to this site but this recipe sounds wonderful so will have to try it soon.Claylady in Oregon
I was looking for a way to use up some leftover turkey & ham so I thought I'd give this one a try. To mimic the cordon bleu flavor more closely, I used swiss cheese in place of the cheddar. I used skim milk instead of cream to lighten it up a bit and as suggested by another reviewer, I cut back on the breadcrumbs by about half. This tasted just like chicken cordon bleu without all the fuss. Will definitely 'make again' the next time I have Christmas leftovers to use up.
This is a family favorite--have been making it for years. A great way to use up that turkey and ham too. What I love best is the subtle dill flavor that is imparted.
It was decent - not super good. I did have to skip the ham though, because it smelled funny. Also, I didn't have half and half or light cream, so I used milk and sour cream. I also skipped the walnuts. I used crushed croutons as the topping and they had so much herb flavor, that I skipped the dill. If I were to make this again, I would substitute the dill for lots of fresh ground black pepper. If you're not used to eating dill, like us, that would be more suitable, I think.
Really, really good! B/c of family tastes, I omitted onions and walnuts, and everyone raved. The only suggestion was to reduce bread crumb topping - 1 c is a lot! Leftovers (there wasn't much!) were even better the next day. Next time, I want to dot the top with cranberry sauce before adding crumb topping. Definitely a keeper recipe.
Almost too easy to make. For my taste it needed salt, but that was the only adjustment.
Great recipe! I made it into 2 dishes so I froze one for another day. I didn't use the walnuts and next time I think I may try crushed butter crackers or some crushed croutons. :)
This was really yummy! I halved the recipe, used thyme & tarragon instead of dill, and used all my leftover half & half, heavy cream, and evap milk to get 1 cup. I used dijon mustard instead of dry mustard and potato flakes for breadcrumbs since my husband is GF. It was really, really yummy!
Delicious! Creamy and flavorful, a fabulous way to use leftover ham and turkey. Makes a generous amount. Made a lovely meal with a green salad, bread and fruit. Thanks so much, NurseDi, for a great recipe!
This was easy and delicious. I added about 2 cups of cooked broccoli and reduced the amount of meat. I also used onion powder instead of onions and sprinkled a small can of fried onions on the top before adding the bread crumbs. Left out the walnuts. I think next time I would add a little salt to the sauce, but other than that it was super!
