“EASY! I found a recipe (or idea) from Paula Deen, and switched up a few things to suit myself. It is much simpler than original cordon bleu and the flavor is GREAT! I use country (salty) ham, as that is what I may substitute your favorite deli ham, of course....This is great for company and pretty quick to throw tasty, and they'll think you worked for hours!”
