The iconic sandwich of Kentucky: Recipe: Hot Brown Fri, 04/26/13 1:52 PM (permalink)
Here's my formula for the Hot Brown:
 
Ingredients:
1 T. shallots, finely chopped
2 T. butter
2 T flour
1.5 c. milk, whole
1 T. Sherry wine
1 c. Romano Pecorino
4 each, slices Texas toast, buttered and broiled
1 lb Turkey breast sliced thin, run by LA BBQ or another good purveyor and buy the smoked-style
4 slices tomato
8 slices bacon (par-cooked) Benton out of Madisonville, Tn is a good option
Method
* melt butter, saute' shallots
* add flour
* cook roux for upwards of 5 minutes
* add milk, whisk til gravy forms
* cook for five minutes, add cheese and sherry, whisk thoroughly
* you now have Mornay sauce!
Line baking dish with Texas Toast
Garnish with turkey and Mornay sauce
Top with bacon and tomatoes
Broil til bacon is crisp and Mornay forms a crust
Voila!

    And I agree that Alan Benton's Bacon is Outstanding...Alan is a personal acquaintance of several Roadfood Members and make some of the best Bacon and Country Ham available anywhere in the U S A ..

        I hope you can make a better Benedictine spread than we did.  We checked out recipes from several Kentucky cook books to make it for for a Derby party last year.  We were underwhelmed.
