Pork Cordon Bleu, usually only purchased at higher end restaurants that charge lots of pretty monies for you to be able to enjoy its yummy goodness. I chose to make some at home because I didn’t want to have to spend lots of monies to get some. Little did I know using authentic ingredients to create the meal would cost me lots of monies. Jiminy Christmas… prosciutto is a pretty little penny! It was all still better than buying this at a restaurant though, I have to admit. I found this little gem of a recipe here.
First slice up your pork tenderloin into equal parts. There were only two of us, but I bought enough to make eight of these and figured we could refrigerate and reheat later.
Next put a piece of tenderloin on some wax paper, cover it with another sheet of wax paper, then bang the poop out of it with a meat tenderizer until it’s nice and flat.
Season it with some salt & pepper on both sides, lay a piece of thinly cut prosciutto on top of it and marvel at its glory.
Add a layer of Swiss cheese.
Roll it up and toothpick it to keep it together.
Put some oil and butter in a frying pan and put it on medium to start heating up the frying pan.
Beat a couple of eggs and dip each roll in the egg mixture to coat them.
Roll them in the bread crumbs.
Fry each one of the rolls on all sides until they’re golden brown.
Very low in sugar, high in phosphorus, very high selenium and thiamin, high in B6 & B12. However... also high in saturated fat and cholesterol so eat with care.
