Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

This soup was creamy with a little kick of spice in the background.
In hind sight we thought it would be even better with a light, flaky biscuit baked on top:)
I highly recommend this one if you love Chicken Cordon Bleu and even if you don't love it or have never had it!

First melt butter and add chopped onion-cook until tender
add in flour

add half and half

Meanwhile cook chicken
once browned add to the above mixture along with some chicken broth

the round-up of spices^
*not pictured* yellow mustard
and throw in some fresh broccoli
then throw in cubed ham

Pour into ramekins

Grate some good cheese:)
lots of it!!

top soup with as much cheese as you think you should;)

then top the whole thing with a pie crust-cut just a little bigger than ramekin

brush with egg wash

cut slits

then, just go ahead, break into this crispy crust to get to that creamy goodness!!
Hope you enjoy our take on the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu:)
