If you frequent my blog much, you’ll notice that I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade meals. We’re a busy family and I like to be able to cook a nice meal and have it on the table in thirty minutes. I also get bored with the same recipes, and sometimes it’s fun to mix it up. Today I’m sharing a simply special meal that can go from freezer to dining room table in about 35 minutes. I’m preparing a slightly different Bacon, Broccoli, and Cheese Casserole that I pair with Barber Foods Cordon Bleu and fresh steamed veggies for a tasty family meal. The casserole uses cheddar cheese soup, bread crumbs, bacon, fried onion straws, a splash of milk, an egg, cheddar cheese, and of course, broccoli.
Monday’s are especially rough on our household. My son has theater practice every Sunday afternoon. He’s back to school on Monday, plus he typically has a soccer game (I coach) and theater practice. We try to squeeze in dinner and get ready for Jeremy to leave to teach for the week. I want Jeremy to have a good meal before he leaves, but I don’t have time make an elaborate dinner. Meals like Cordon Bleu & Bacon, Broccoli, and Cheese Casserole often help me resist the urge to grab something take-out to feed my family. I can quickly mix up my side dish, and let our entree and side cook in the oven together while I’m helping Gabe finish any homework he might have. This casserole is a great way to sneak some veggies into the diet of a non-veggie eater too.

I bake the Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu simultaneously according to package directions. Always remember standard food safety rules for chicken, it needs to reach an internal temperature of 165F. We have a digital meat thermometer that comes in very handy.
I found the Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breasts in the freezer section of my local Kroger. Barber Foods has a coupon available for $1 off Original Stuffed Chicken Breasts if you follow this link. Make sure you look for the updated packaging which includes the new recipes. My family loved the flavor and they’re so easy to bake. I’m excited to try some of the other Barber Foods Breaded Stuffed Chicken Breasts such as the Broccoli & Cheese or the Chicken Kiev.
Look for this packaging in your freezer section of your local grocery store.
