The day after--The Hot Brown - Old Bay - 11-18-2007

I'm not a big turkey fan, but if you eat it once a year it's ok---and I look forward to brunch the morning after. This is an incredably rich, delicious way to use leftovers. From the Brown Hotel in Louisville.
4 oz butter
6 T flour
3 C milk
1 beaten egg
6 T grated parmesan cheese
1 oz whipped cream
salt & pepper to taste
slices of roast turkey
8 to 12 slices of toast
1/4 beefsteak tomato
extra parmesan for topping
8 to 12 strips of fried bacon
Melt butter and add enough flour to make a reasonably thick roux (enough to absorb all the butter). Add milk and cheese. Add egg to thicken sauce--heat, but do not allow sauce to boil. Remove from heat. Fold in whipped cream. Add salt and pepper.

For each Hot Brown, place 2 slices of toast on a flameproof dish. Cover toast with a liberal amount of turkey. Pour a generous amount of sauce over turkey and toast. Add tomato to sides of dish (2 slices). Sprinkle with additional cheese. Place entire dish under a broiler until sauce is speckled brown and bubbly. Remove from broiler, cross two pieces of bacon on top and serve immediately.

I love Hot Browns!! It's on my list also for some of the turkey I have to cook! I cut the darn turkey up into 4 parts so we wouldn't get so tired of it, but I'm so anxious for the leftovers, we'll probaby just keep on keepin' on with it...

I have always wanted to try these. They sound so good.

Well, I vowed to my husband that this year I will make them and we can try them.

I had never seen them until now. Perhaps this pic will give others (who haven't seen them either) the inspiration to use those turkey leftovers in a new way!
