Cordon bleu: The fine art of the schnitzel

When you combine a crispy crumbed, pan-fried golden schnitzel with spicy, melted cheese and boiled ham, the result is a delicious fusion "à la cordon bleu". Whether prepared fresh or bought as a ready-to-cook product from the chiller cabinet, cordon bleu is one of the most popular meat dishes.

What is in cordon bleu?

The main ingredient of cordon bleu is the schnitzel. Traditionally, cordon bleu is made from pork or veal, however turkey and chicken can also be used to create a slightly lighter dish. A pocket must be cut out of the meat using a sharp knife, so the thicker the schnitzel the better. The seasoned pocket of meat is then stuffed with a slice of cheese – Emmentaler, Gruyère, Appenzeller or raclette cheese are best suited. Creative cooks can also experiment with other types of cheese such as Roquefort or Gorgonzola.

Place a slice of ham in the pocket with the cheese. Cordon bleu is usually made with boiled ham, however you can vary the recipe by using air-dried or smoked ham. Once the pocket is full, the schnitzel can be covered in breadcrumbs and pan-fried over a medium heat until golden brown.

Fresh salad, mixed vegetables, potatoes or herb quark are all great accompaniments to cordon bleu. Ingredients such as meat, cheese and ham can all be ordered conveniently at coop@home.
