Cordon Brie

>
I had been thinking of and lusting for chicken cordon bleu the whole day long, so on my way home I stopped at the store to buy the ingredients.
They should have been : Two large, boneless/skinless chicken breasts, a pack of sliced ham and a pack of sliced swiss cheese.
However, when I got home I realized that I had forgotten the swiss cheese. At first I wanted to rush back to the shop to get the swiss cheese, but when I took the eggs for the breading out of the fridge I saw a lovely brie cheese and made an executive decision – “tonight’s chicken cordon bleu shall contain brie instead of swiss”.
During dinner, I decided that from now on, ALL cordon bleu in my house will be made with brie. Brie is so much more tasty and runny than swiss, so it makes the perfect filling.
Long live  ” Cordon Bleu Brie !

P.S.
If you are a light eater, you might want to cut each cordon brie into half  before breading  to yield 4 four portions instead of the two I prepared for Bella and I
– one to be served hot for tonight, the other one to be served cold (room temperature) tomorrow.

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS # 57 – Chicken, Spinach And Potato Frittata

>
>
A bowl  of granola for breakfast is a wonderful thing for a lot of folks – but for me, it is NOT.
If I want my day to start on a happy note, I need food that say’s HAPPY to me.
A bowl of granola or such just says BAHH to me and is, in my humble opinion, but a sorry excuse for a satisfying breakfast 😦 .
On the other hand, a delicious frittata – now we are talking ! 🙂
Throw in a couple of gherkins, a few green leaves and grape tomatoes in yogurt/honey dressing and Voilà ! – bring it on, tough day !

The Slammer

It  is great to have the liberty to name the dishes one creates, even using somewhat goofy but fitting names, such as “The Slammer” 🙂
This is one of the dishes which owe their creation to the fact that sometimes I think I have nothing in the fridge to prep a great meal and going to the shop is not an option. Out of this familiar dilemma, sometimes a wonderful dish finds the light of day, as happened with this mouthwatering, sexy sandwich.

Chicken Sandwich On A Pretzel Roll



Sometimes,  in our quest to make evermore beautiful, innovative, stunning, different food, we forget that a simple sandwich, if done well, can give enormous culinary satisfaction if it hit’s the right spot at the right time.
This afternoon was the right time for me to just have a sandwich, a cold beer and a good movie 🙂
The sandwich was a scrumptious  Chicken Sandwich,  the brewskies were  Negra Modelo’s  and the movie was  Reservoir Dogs.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
