Pork Cordon Bleu

"I found this recipe on a German recipe website when looking for pork recipes. I love chicken cordon bleu, and thought this was a great twist on an old favorite. I assume you could use any cheese you liked in this recipe. Putting here for safe keeping."

  1. I got some thickish pork chops and cut pockets in them, stuffed them with Gouda cheese and deli ham, breaded per instructions, and, oh, then we cook it in olive oil AND butter? How can it be anything but amazing? It all worked perfectly. Not clear what the bacon in the ingredients list is for, but I do know that the French, as well as Germans of the Rhein region, would pour brown gravy over this, so maybe that's what the bacon went into. Marvelous. Made for Zaar World Tour 6, Voracious Vagabonds.
  2. This made a very nice main dish for our Swiss dinner with Recipe #441862 and Recipe #441475. I tenderized my pork chops until quite thin, layered the bacon as per ingredients rather than the ham in the instructions, swiss cheese and rolled them up tucking in the sides, securing with tooth picks. I used crushed corn flakes seasoned with sea salt, pepper, onion & garlic powder. As I had quite a few chops, I also rolled some around asparagus spears. The regular batch I fried and baked the ones with asparagus spears. I think next time I'll bake these and I'll still add asparagus or broccoli but chopped up and stuffed inside :). Very nice recipe and I look forward to adding it to our winter time comfort foods. Thanks for posting iewe! Made and enjoyed for team Mischief Makers - ZWT#7, Switzerland :)
  3. I cut my chops from a pork loin, cut them thin and 'hammered' them even thinner. Then I added ham and cheese and rolled them up into rolls and secured with a tooth pick.Not sure where you add the bacon, but we did not miss it. Also, I used 1 Tbsp each of butter and olive oil, I would say that 1/2 a cup of each would be way too much. Made for ZWT 7 - Food.Commandoes


I am the mother of three, wife of one :) My teenager is the pickiest eater in the world, while my 3 year old will eat anything (though has been acting more and more fickle lately). Our newest addition was born in June 2008, so she doesn't really know much in the way of varieties of food. My husband says "I don't care what you fix, as long as it has meat in it." I have thousands of recipes saved on my computer from over the years, and am constantly on the lookout for new ones. I also seem to have accumulated hundreds of cookbooks over the years. I am (slowly) trying to go thru all the recipes I have saved and add them to 'Zaar, but this will take some time. I try to only post things that my family (or I) will eat (though I haven't necessarily yet tried every recipe I have posted). <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/ZWT3b.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_39528.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/potluckpbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/kid-friendlytag-participation2.gif"> <img src="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y164/lauralie41/cookbookswapspring08-2.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/123HitAMpage.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/stacky5.jpg"> <img src="http://i497.photobucket.com/albums/rr336/jess4freedom/Zaar%20banners/Kid-Friendly-Tag.jpg"><img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a24/ohohkatie/MARCHTAG1.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
