Oh the deliciousness of a Kentucky Hot Brown. Toasted bread, a thick layer of turkey, a nice cheesy sauce and then a slice of tomato topped with bacon. What's not to love right?
The only "recipe" you will need for this one is for the sauce; the rest is just layering the ingredients.
The following will make 4 sandwiches:
4 slices thick sliced bread, toasted
1 lb. thick sliced turkey (you can either warm the turkey slices slightly or not)
1 large ripe tomato, sliced
8 slices bacon, cooked and drained
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 T. all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. black pepper
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Slowly whisk in the flour. Whisking constantly, cook the roux for 1 minute.
Slowly add the milk and bring to a boil, whisking constantly for a minute or two until the sauce has thickened.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and remove from heat.
