Twisted Cordon Bleu ~ Remade!

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

I made this recipe originally last year. It was incredibly good and really was a beautiful meal. I was looking a back at the recipes in my past posts and truly did not like how the photos turned out for this. Lucky us! This gave me the opportunity to make this fantastic meal again! I can’t believe the difference in the photos. I left the old version up on the site and chose to make this a completely separate post. Slowly… I have been going back and updating photos though, so go explore the old recipes and see the new pictures sometime.
