    Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders

    2 reviews

    These Kentucky hot brown sliders are perfect for derby parties, though I serve them at parties throughout the year.

I like to cover and refrigerate my assembled sandwiches so I can just pop them in the oven when company arrives. — Blair Lonergan, Rochelle, Virginia
