  • Prosciutto — Choose thinly sliced prosciutto for a delicate and savory taste.

Tips & Tricks

  • Serve the Cordon Bleu with a creamy mushroom sauce for an extra touch of luxury.
  • Experiment with different types of cheese, such as Emmental or Fontina, for unique flavor variations.
  • If you prefer a healthier option, bake the Cordon Bleu without pan-frying it.
