Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)

The flavors of classic cordon bleu translate delectably as a raveworthy grilled cheese. Serve with a side of wilted spinach or a salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan. Arrange 4 bread slices in pan. Layer cheese, prosciutto, and chicken over slices.

Step 2

Combine sour cream and mustard in a bowl; spread over remaining 4 slices. Top sandwiches in pan with bread slices, sour cream side down.

Step 3

Cook 3 minutes. Turn over; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Spread butter evenly over tops of sandwiches; sprinkle evenly with thyme.

Mixed reviews at our house.  I did use sharp cheddar in place of the gruyere because that is what I had on hand.  I also used my panini press and thus left out the oil and butter.  And because I saved fat and calories there, I used mayo as substitute for the sour cream.  I think next time I'll just get some thin sliced ham from the deli and skip the prosciutto which was very salty.

Solid sandwich

I would make this again for sure. I would sub mayonnaise for the sour cream, and depending on the thickness of your prosciutto be a bit more generous with it. I did this on a homemade honey whole wheat bread. Good hit all around. Fast easy supper with some leftover roasted chicken. 

Great Panini

Excellent sandwich--I mad it exactly as written but cooked it my panini press rather than in a skillet.  I served it with Trader Joe's zucchini fries--a great Friday night meal!

Sounded great...

But was not.   We used our panini press as well.  Only substitution was deli ham for the prosciutto.  The sandwich was bland and I saw no way to better it. Will not make again.
