Chicken Cordon Bleu Rollups w/ Mashed Cauliflower

Tonights blog is short and sweet....wait....savory!  If you haven't tried mashed cauliflower - you totally should!  When I'm trying to watch my carbs I like to have it in place of mashed potatoes or even rice.  The Pampered Chef Mix N' Chop is the perfect tool for making a rice-like consistency.  Add a little soy sauce and try it sometime with stir fry!

Sorry guys.....there are no measurements on this one....so you're just gonna have to wing it.  It's super simple!  This is what you will need:

Chicken Cutlets (or chicken breasts pounded out thin)
deli ham
swiss cheese
olive oil
salt & pepper

Here is what you're gonna do:

Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll-Ups
Roll up ham and swiss cheese inside the chicken cutlets.  Secure with a toothpick.  Melt about 2T butter and 1T olive oil in a stainless steel skillet.  Saute' chicken roll ups for about 4 minutes on each side and finish in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  When finished drizzle the browned butter and any escaping cheese from the skillet over the top of chicken.  Enjoy!

Mashed Cauliflower
Meanwhile, cut califlower florets and place in a saucepan covered with water.  Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes or until califlower is fork tender.  When done, mash together with about 2 T butter and season with salt and pepper.  Enjoy!

I make that cordon bleu! Try it with a little Ian's Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs for an AWESOME texture. Still haven't tried steamed cauliflower. A little scared but I promise I will...at some point. :)
