Crescent Cordon Bleu

While I have my recipe book pulled out I will share another one of my favorite recipes.

2 cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked ham, chopped
1 6oz. jar sliced mushrooms, drained
1 cup (4oz package) Swiss cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten
sesame seeds

Heat oven to 350. Grease large cookie sheet

In medium bowl, combine chicken, ham, mushrooms and cheese.

Separate dough into 8 rectangles; firmly press perforateions to seal.

Spoon rounded 1/2 cup ham mixture onto center of each rectangle.

Pull 4 corners of dough to center; twist slightly and seal edges.

Place on prepared cookie sheet. Brush with egg; sprinkle with sesame seed.

Bake for 18-24 minutes or until golden brown.

Excellent! You've sold me! :D 8) I've even made deep fried Cordon Bleu, it's as simple as wrapping a stick of Swiss with sliced ham, secured with toothpicks, battered and then df'd. Pretty good except that some of the Swiss has an annoying habit of squirting out while frying. :?

Had abj's tonight, it was pretty good!
I didn't use the sesame seeds though, I used bread crumbs instead. I don't like things that get caught in my teeth :o)

This sounds so good...I'm going to try it soon. I wonder if it might be good to serve it with some sort of sauce, or perhaps some creamed spinach???

Constance, I'll bet a veloute sauce would be great with this! It's what I use on salmon en croute - veloute (forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know!) is just a bechemel basically, only it's made with chicken stock instead of milk or cream. Here's a great site that has a lot of variations for the sauce, also:

The sauce is an interesting idea. I think overall it would make the dish a little richer and heavier, but it could add a whole different flavor. I would just make sure to put it on right before serving so the bread doesn't soften too much. I really enjoy this recipe because you can make it your own. Many times I end up adding more cheese because for me there can never be too much of it. Let me know if you try a sauce and how it worked.
