Simplicity – Small & Cheap

Living simply & cheaply…wherever you are!

AFM – Cordon Bleu Casserole

I had this on my menu plan to use Chicken leftover from Tuesday but I never cooked that and had a bunch of turkey in the freezer that I wanted to use up.    I’m sure chicken would work just as well.

The original came from Taste Of Home‘s Cookout/Potluck super Magazine, but you can find it on their website.

You will need:

  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 4 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-3/4 cups milk

Directions:

In a greased 2-qt. baking dish, layer the turkey, cheese and ham; set aside.

In a large saucepan, saute the onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, mustard and nutmeg until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over ham.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Yield: 6 servings.

COOKS NOTES:  The original recipe includes a bread crumb topping, but everytime I make one, it stinks.   I scraped all mine off–I just can’t seem to get it right.   Also, the ham I had was thin sliced lunchmeat-style and so I just shredded it fine.    If you use chunks, the original has you browning the ham first.
