Bacon wrapped Cordon Bleu Ham Armor

A play off chicken cordon bleu without the fancy. Been getting knocked around a bit over the last couple weeks and not able to knock these recipes out. Will try to catch up this week. This sucker came out really good and not too much labor. Keep reading
I’ll explain the ham's cut below on how I should have cut it. Don’t know why I did it like that. Not putting the green beans in because they are just seasoned and garlic-ed. Nothing to write home about.

  • 1 chicken breast ( cut almost in half flat ways. Don’t slice all the way through, should be one piece.)
  • 1 lb bacon (='s 9 strips of thick )
  • 1/4 in ham steak (no honey or maples. Look for just a ham steak.)
  • ¼ cup blue cheese (crumbled )
  • 2 tbsp Biddy



  • Take your chicken breast and pound it out pretty thin. Try to get it evenly flat thickness.
  • On a cutting board lay out a bacon weave. Over under, over under, until you have enough bacon surface to lay chicken breast on.
  • I didn’t use Sowflakes on this because it’s too sweet to be mingling with the blue cheese.
  • Cover chicken breast with Biddy (as much as you feel comfortable) and lay on bacon tent.
  • Note: See how the ham is one piece? Yeah, cut it evenly long ways to get at least 3 strips. This will make your rolling experience a lot better. Mine was only cut once because I was making it up as I go. It worked but 3 strips would have been fine. BETTER A thin sliced no sugars deli ham would work great too. Tell them you want one 1/4 inch piece.
  • Lay ham on chicken breast then add about ¼ cup of blue cheese.
  • Roll the sleeping bag away from you taking care of any bacon not rolling the right direction.
  • Your roll should end up with bacon ends on bottom of chicken roll.
  • On the sides of the roll pin loose bacon ends into the roll’s side with a toothpick or 5.
  • I use an aluminum foil covered cookie sheet with a grate on top but you can lay flat on sheet if not grate is around.
  • IF you cook flat on cookie sheet remember to turn roll over with 15 minute left on cooking time. This will crisp up the bacon bottom better.
  • Sprinkle more Biddy over roll and place on cookie sheet trying to keep bacon ends on bottom.
  • Throw in oven for 30 minutes and check for problems.
  • Cook for an additional 30 minutes, pull and let cool.
  • Slice it up and enjoy. It would feed 2 normal people, 1 me...

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
