Reviews for Cordon Bleu Appetizers
"What a delicious appetizer. I used leftover ham from Easter. I was excited to use chives from my garden too! As another reviewer used a baguette, I would have like to also but it was not available the day I was at the store. I went with the French bread and wound up cutting each slice in half for a more manageable appetizer. The texture is perfect and everyone loved the subtle mustard taste. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect."
"These are so good!! and really simple to make. I used a baguette so they were small if you use French bread they'd be a meal. I used reduced fat cream cheese."
"I have made this recipe for a few years now and it is amazing!! We do alot of entertaining and football parties and I always double the recipe and I never have leftovers. If you want to make a filling appitizer that everyone will like, this is the one, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!!"
"These are Very good! A Big hit!"
"I made this recipe for my sisters bridal shower, everyone loved it!! I ended up running out...nothing better than seeing a plate full of just crumbs!! =)"
"I made this thought it was ok. Made it agin with twice the amount of cream cheese and added a little cooked chicken made it better I might make them only if I already had everthing."
"I added 5 thin slices of dried beef (from a jar) that I had diced. It gave it the zip and salt it needed without being too salty. I also added a teaspoon of dill weed for flavor. Great!"
"It's a keeper. Thank you for sharing"
"where is the chicken??"
"I cook almost weekly for other people so I'm lways looking for new and delicious recipes. This recipe is absolutely delicious! As suggested by another cook, I used 1/4 cup of mayo. This makes the mix easier to spread on the bread. Also, I used French baguette slices which are the perfect size for an appetizer. This recipe is a keeper!"
"Made these several times for bridal showers. Everyone went on about them. I used rolls sliced down and I use cheddar cheese instead of swiss. If I haven't any dijon mustard, I use spicy mustard and mayo"
"I have made these for different groups of people everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. I had extra spread, so I used some baked Pillsbury Hungry Jack biscuits, that I had been using for another appetizer I was making, in place of the French bread. It was also very good and it was decided that we preferred the biscuits if being used for a breakfast/brunch, and the French bread if being used in the afternoon/evening."
"My family and friends love this recipe!"
"Excellent! Everytime I make these for new people they rave about them!"
"I used this recipe as a hot dip with baguette bread slices and it went over really well."
"re: Cordon Bleu AppetizersThanks for the previous comments because I knew what to do from them. To add more zip I used a combination of spicey brown mustard & Horshradish mustard..also I used more than a tsp of this..more like a tbsp & 1/2. They do take longer to bake then suggested so just keep that in mind.I served them to my co-workers with rave reviews & will certainly make them again!!"
"I love this recipe and have made it twice now with good reviews from family members. The 2nd time I added the mayo as suggested above and they were even better. I definitely will make these again."
"We did not think they were that tasty. I cooked them longer than the recipe said to get the cheese to melt. I think they need more zip also"
"I made this yesterday and I everyone really like them. What a great idea! I think the only change I will do is to add 1/4 cup mayo to add a little zip to it. Will definitely make again."
"This is such an easy appetizer - A real keeper - thank you"
"The first time I followed instructions and loved the flavors. The second time, I omitted bread, doubled all the other ingredients, plus an additional tbsp. of dijon mustard, then added a box of cooked macaroni (plus about 1/2 cup of pasta water). Made a great casserole. These flavors are really tasty together."
