Cordon Bleu Bake

It's September and even though it's still close to 30 degrees I'm craving hearty warming meals. Today was my first day at my new job, so I only had a bit of time and threw together bits of my favourite meals and made it into a casserole. It was delicious!

Cordon Bleu Bake

3 cups Chicken, cooked & cubed
2 cups Swiss Cheese, shredded
2 cups Ham, cooked & cubed
1/2 cup Butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 tsp Dry Mustard Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
1/2 cup Flour
2 cups Milk
1/2 cup White Wine
1 package (120g) Chicken Stuffing Mix
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1/2 cup Swiss Cheese, shredded

In a greased baking dish, spread cubed chicken in an even layer. Top with shredded cheese, then top with cubed ham. 
In a saucepan, melt butter. Add onion and cook until transparent. Add garlic and seasonings and cook for 30 seconds. Add flour, stir and let cook for 2 minutes. Slowly add milk and wine and stir until sauce thickens. 
Pour over ham. In a separate bowl, combine stuffing mix, melted butter and swiss cheese. Spread evenly over sauce mixture.

Bake in a 350F oven for 20-30 minutes until bubbly and topping browns. 

Great make-ahead or freezer meal.

Wishing it were at least 10 degrees cooler so I could really enjoy this wonderful dish...
