Beef Cordon Blue

Beef Cordon Bleu is a classical french dish. A fantastic amalgam of meat, cured meat and cheese. It is one of the fondest dishes found across Europe, because of its crispy and cheesy feel. Often served with accompanied sauces, but in itself is too flavorsome.

Story
One of my personal favorites is this version of beef cordon bleu, also one of the reasons for one to have put on weight. But indeed a cracker of a dish in itself, has so much flavors to offers. Personally I would highly recommend.
