The iconic sandwich of Kentucky: Recipe: Hot Brown

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!
