Cordon Bleu Casserole

Total time:  Approximately 1 hour.

What a great use for leftover turkey!!

2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
4 cups cubed cooked turkey (we used chicken)
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 large onion, chopped (we used 1 medium)
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 3/4 cups milk

1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted

In a nonstick skillet, saute ham for 4-5 minutes or until browned; drain and pat dry.

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

In a 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.

Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over the top.

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

Yield: 6 servings

So, I found this recipe before Thanksgiving, and tried it with chicken ( and FYI, if you use chicken, use a medium onion, otherwise the onion is a little strong). It was Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! So, as a leftover dish, I think everyone will enjoy it. It is a one dish meal, but you can add broccoli in it for veggies and dinner rolls… but we ate it just as is, nothing extra… with no leftovers… mmmmmmmmmm .. -Marion
