Categories : A List Sandwiches

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 oz butter
6 Tbsp flour
3 1/2 cups milk
1 egg -- beaten
6 Tbsp parmesan cheese -- grated
1 oz whipped cream
12 oz turkey -- sliced
12 oz ham -- sliced
12 slices bread -- trimmed
12 strips bacon -- fried
1 cup whipping cream
8 slices tomato

Melt butter and flour to make a roux. In a 1 quart pot add milk and cream then bring to a simmer for two minutes. Next add the parmesan cheese. Stir well until the cheese has been incorporated. Add 1 Tbsp of the roux and cook for 5 minutes. Temper the beaten egg with a little bit of the cream mixture. Then fold the egg mixture into the mixture left in the pot. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

For each hot brown, place two slices of bread on a flame proof dish. Cover the bread with a liberal amount of turkey and place two tomato wedges next to the turkey on each side. Pour a generous amount of sauce over the turkey and toast. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese. Place entire dish in the oven at 450 degrees until golden and bubbly. Remove from oven, cross two pieces of bacon on top, and serve immediately.

In the mid-80's, DH was a project architect for the restoration of The Brown Hotel in Louisville and, at the grand re-opening, I tasted my first Hot Brown and fell in looooove. Since then I have reworked the recipe (whipping cream! butter!) and have produced a reasonable fascimile.

Funny this should come up now. Yes, it's "timely" because of The Derby, but I just so happen to be roasting a turkey breast for dinner tonight and one of the Leftover Dinners will be Hot Browns.

So, was mention made of mint juleps?????

We went to the derby in '99--a friend had great seats. We had Hot Browns after and Juleps at the Derby. We had a Julep today watching the race--and as per Jane "I'm having a glass of wine to sober up"--me too!!

Don't be making those kinds of offers, Billy...

The other day DH, out of the blue, said "we should take a vacation to the Pacific Northwest to see if we'd like to retire there.". Wha???? So, beware! It just may happen!

I sadly did not watch the Derby today. I know....bad girl! I always watch! But I had so many things going on, not to mention dodging in and out of the sun on the deck to mess with this DARNED computer!

I'll share more of what I was doing during the derby tomorrow if the computer will cooperate!

AS for Hot Browns... I had always heard of them, but never had them until last year. I made Bill and Jane's recipe. It was GREAT!

I look forward to making the "original" next year, Billy!

(Luckily, I missed being tempted this year....YUM!)

We have Hot Browns almost everytime I cook a turkey - here's a leftover version that isn't quite as bad, but equally delicious, imo. I think it came from a Southern Living mag.
