Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich

Chicken Cordon Bleu is hands down one of my absolute favorite dinners! You probably already know that by now with all the variations I do of the dish ;-)

When I was pregnant with my boy, the only thing I ever wanted was a sandwich. No, not PB&J but something called the “The Downtowner” that was served with an array of things including a cream cheese spread.  At that time, this idea was knew to me.  I had only really ever used mayonnaise. Pretty sure I had one of these sandwiches at least 2 times a week until I gave birth to my baby boy.

The other day I wanted a sandwich.  Not just any sandwich though…. a big, fat, meaty one. Then I thought, well I want a creamy one too, that use a cream cheese spread like the sandwich I once loved. That is when this idea hit me. I can have all of these wants with chicken cordon bleu! Thus a sandwich was born, and a mighty fine sandwich at that.

My husband came home from work and I made him one, too! Together we oohed and awed over every bite.

    Oh my goodness that looks outstanding. I, too, am a sucker for a good sandwich. And I just happen to have a bit of bacon leftover from a soup I made last night, I think I may have just found a use for it! :-)

    I don't have any deli chicken... If I precook breasts then slice, do you think this would work as well??

    This sounds really good but I am a little confused as to why you would put the bread crumbs in with the cream cheese and mayo?
