Chef’s tips:

  • For ham and cheese, we used a metal round shape of the same size as eggplant. But you can cut it into square or any other shape.
  • Breaded cordon bleu can be stored in the refrigerator for several hours.
  • Cooked sandwiches can be cooled, cut into 4 pieces and served at table as a snack or antipasto
