The featured sandwich is very good and a fantastic use for roasted turkey. It is easy to make too. However, being originally from Kentucky, this is not even close to an authentic Kentucky Hot Brown sandwich. The authentic Hot Brown is made with a roux that is a blend of heavy cream, flour, ground black pepper and pecorino Romano cheese (no cheddar) over the turkey. The bread is two pieces of thick-cut white bread, with the roux over the turkey and bread. Then add slices of tomato on top; crown with more roux and crispy bacon strips. Broil until browned and serve on a plate with knife

Loved them! I made two SMALL changes, I used regular fresh ground pepper and thick Texas Toast. Delicious!

This was a tasty and easy dinner, and a good way to use leftover turkey. We used wheat bread instead of white and left off the bacon. It was still good, but we will probably use the bacon next time!

We have a sandwich like this where I work and since I work the night shift I'm never there to eat it. This was better than the one from work. I did increase the cheese for a bit more flavor and instead of Italian bread I used croissants. SO GOOD!!!!
