Hot Brown with Bacon

Quick Hot Brown Recipe
Kentucky Derby Party Week

I love Hot Browns, hot cheesy open faced sandwiches dripping with white sauce, stuffed with turkey, ham, and bacon. It’s just that a “real” Hot Brown is supposed to be made with a freshly roasted turkey.The day after Thanksgiving, we ALWAYS serve Hot Browns maxed out with all the whistles and bells.

But it’s Kentucky Derby Week, and I do not have time to roast a turkey. Now do not go pointing fingers at me, I made 12 gallons of burgoo, served about 40 pounds of bbq and fixings to Bears, batted out a newspaper column, did a guest radio spot, got certified to be a “micro-processor” at the Farmers Market, prepared twenty posts for this blog and held down a real job. Give me a break…giggles.

Hot Browns in a Hurry Recipe appeared in Wednesday’s Appalachian News Express. I used Kentucky Legends Ham and Turkey for this quick version. Kentucky Legends is processed in Owensboro, KY by the same folks who bring you Nathan’s Hot Dogs. They are a certified “Kentucky Proud” brand.
