Cordon Bleu Casserole Recipe

I often roast a turkey just to have leftovers for this creamy casserole. It makes for a pretty presentation at potluck dinners.—Joyce Paul, Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan

"Easy to make."

"Made this last night. Yummy! Made it with cooked chicken, but other than that exactly as instructed. May cut amount of onion, some bites a little overpowering. Definitely a keeper & comfort food on a rainy/snowy night."

"The dish is a keeper. We substituted turkey in the recipe and enjoyed it. The breadcrumbs were yummy. My one qualm was the onion really overpowered it. We'll cut that in half next time and enjoy it more."

"I also used chicken instead of turkey and thought the flavor was wonderful but thought it needed rice or pasta."

"LOVE this recipe. Like many others, I usually substitute chicken breasts for the turkey, but it's always tasty and well received!"

"We loved it but I used chicken instead of turkey."

Reviewed Oct. 21, 2008

"I love this recipe - and make it all the time - but use chicken breasts - cooked and diced or sliced and I slice or dice the ham also. I actually prefer the sliced as it makes it more "cordon bleu" style.

I layer it as in recipe - but make the sauce with the swiss cheese included. After layering I throw in some chunked swiss and mozzarella to bubble up under the topping... As a shortcut I use a package of stuffing mix (Stove Top or other) if I want to save time."

"I love this recipe - I put on a free lunch once a week for our town and teach our local moms how to cook. This is one of the favourites. I have made some adjustments to this recipe - mainly: it can be made with cooked chicken breasts - and if necessary ham slices and the topping can be substituted with Stove Top Stuffing. This just makes it more available on a daily basis - not necessarily reserved for after holidays.

Kudos to Joyce for this recipe. It is a winner"
