Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
Hot Brown Sandwiches are as popular in Kentucky as The Derby. Some recipes stack both turkey and ham, although we prefer it without ham. Paired with a side salad, this sandwich makes a hearty meal.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

This recipe is a nice starter. Personally I think that Ham is a very important part of The Hot Brown. The photo does not look like the bread is toasted. The sauce is light and very nice. I did add ham. Instead of using fresh sliced tomatoes I use 2 fried tomatoes per sandwich. I also added some sauce on the toasted bread first, then layered with another layer of sauce in-between the ham and cheese. The remaining sauce I added after the sandwich baked and I also added the bacon at this time.

Because of the tweaks and changes I felt that a 3 star is a fair assessment.
