Cordon Bleu Casserole

We ALL gave this a 10! SO good!!!! This is definitely going into the family book. I would highly recommend following the tip and doing some the day before because it took a lot of time

This is from the Fix-It and Enjoy-It cookbook.

1 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup butter

1/8-1 tsp dry mustard, according to your taste preference
1/8-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, according to your taste preference

1 cup dry bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/4-1 tsp. dill weed, according to your taste preference
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4-1/2 cup, chopped walnuts, according to your taste preference

1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, ham and cheese. Set aside

2. In saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add flour. Stir to form a paste.
