Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Decadence and delight.
I made a creamy Dijon Herb Spread for the crusty baguette. Then layered Virginia baked ham, Muenster cheese, and crispy breaded chicken breasts. Pan grilled the sandwiches with butter. Stood at the kitchen counter and bite by bite made it disappear. Oh how I love a grilled cheese sandwich and this one was exceptional.
