      Original Kentucky Hot Brown

      Serves: 0 | Prep time: minutes


      • 4 oz. butter
      • 6 tablespoons flour
      • 3 - 3 1/2 cups milk
      • 1 beaten egg
      • 6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
      • 1 ounce whipped cream, optional
      • Salt & pepper to taste
      • Slices of roasted turkey
      • 8 - 12 slices of toast, trimmed
      • Extra grated Parmesan cheese
      • 8 - 12 strips crisp, cooked bacon


      Melt butter and add enough of the flour to make a reasonable thick roux (enough to absorb all the butter). Add the milk and Parmesan cheese. Add the well-beaten egg to thicken the sauce, but do not allow it to boil. Remove from the heat. Fold in the whipped cream, if desired. Add salt and pepper to taste.

      For each Hot Brown, place two slices of toast in a metal or flame-proof dish. Cover the toast with slices of roasted turkey. Pour a generous amount of the sauce over the turkey and toast. Sprinkle with some of the additional Parmesan cheese. Place the dish under the broiler until the sauce is speckled on top and bubbly. Remove from the broiler; place two pieces of the bacon, crossed, on top and serve immediately.

      For mini hot browns, substitute trimmed toast for snack size.
