6 Outrageously Delicious Cordon Bleu Recipes
Cordon bleu has to be one of the most beloved breaded and fried meat dishes in the world. Originally from Switzerland, the combination of juicy ham, ooey, gooey cheese, and a crunchy crust is truly irresistible. Most traditional cordon bleu recipes call for pork or veal, but our methods tend to be a little unconventional, so we've put a few twists on the cherished classic, just to keep things interesting. Check out our 6 best cordon bleu recipes!
1. Chicken Cordon Bleu Pastry
The French phrase "cordon bleu" translates as "blue ribbon" in English and was once a byword for the best dishes from the best kitchens.
