National Cordon Bleu Day


What a perfect day for this recipe – I just got an enameled Lodge skillet for my birthday that is perfect for going from stove to broiler like this recipe calls for.  I served my Cordon Bleu with broccoli from the San Luis Obispo Farmer’s Market; tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper; and roasted in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  This is the most delicious broccoli you will ever have – I promise!
