Flounder Cordon Bleu

If you love seafood and you love chicken cordon bleu, you'll want to give this a try. I make another recipe with a sauce similar to this and it's a family favorite. I hope this one becomes a tradition in our family as well.

Flounder Cordon Bleu

2 lbs. flounder fillets
6 slices deli ham
6 slices Swiss cheese
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 egg beaten
1 T butter
1 T flour
1 c milk
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Place 1 slice each of ham and cheese in the center of each fillet. Cut to fit. Season with salt and pepper evenly over each fillet. Roll the fillets and secure with wooden picks. Gently dip rolls in beaten egg, then coat with bread crumbs. Place in a baking dish. Melt butter in sauce pan over medium-heat; blend in flour. Slowly stir in milk and cook until thickened. Pour sauce over fish and top with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily.Print Friendly and PDF
