Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

I have mentioned before how much I love Chicken Cordon Bleu and any variation of it.  Once my husband brought home some leftover pizza from a family event I couldn't go to and I tried some Chicken Cordon Bleu pizza I was hooked.  I don't eat it that often because while my husband likes it, he's much more of a pepperoni fan, but occasionally I breakdown and have it.  It's Chicken Cordon Bleu and pizza - what's not to like?


Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza
Ingredients:
1 batch pizza dough (here is my fave)
1 c. milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup Swiss Cheese
S&P to taste
1 cup diced or shredded cooked chicken
3/4 cup diced cooked ham
1 1/2 cups cheese blend for topping (I like to use mozzarella, swiss and cheddar for this pizza)
a dash of Italian seasoning

Directions:
Make the dough according to instructions

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter and whisk in flour.  Cook for about 1 minute.  Add the milk, whisking constantly.  Bring to a low boil and immediately reduce the heat to low.  Simmer for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Add 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and stir until melted.  Season with S&P to taste

Top the prepared pizza dough with cheese sauce, then top with chicken, ham and pizza cheese mixture.  Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Bake in a 450 degree oven about 10-20 minutes, depending on the dough recipe used.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it

St. Louis Style Pizza (Thin and Crusty Pizza)

Pizza crust is a very personal thing.  Thin, thick, pan, deep-dish, etc.  You love what you love.  I'm a St. Louisan - I love THIN crust pizza.  Like, cracker thin!  I've tried a few different thin crust recipes , and since they're pizza they're enjoyable, but when I saw this recipe on Cook's Country while watching some old videos I knew I needed to try it immediately.  Made it a few days later and it was fantastic.  This is definitely my new go-to cracker thin pizza crust recipe. What I loved best about this recipe is that it was so simple.  A handful of ingredients, no advance prep needed, no unique ingredients, simple.  Literally anyone that can combine a few ingredients together could make this recipe.  And because you don't need to prep it in advance, you could make the dough, sauce, top it and bake the pizza on many given weeknights!  A huge win for our house!
