Hot Brown Turkey Casserole
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min.
Can use other cheese preferences. Good way to use up whipping cream.
Thank you for a recipe that mimics the REAL Hot Browns (From a Native Louisvillian)
Just made this and we love it! Next time I'll try using rye or rye-marble bread. I chopped some leftover turkey breast instead of the deli stuff for less sodium, and I did slice each toast slice into about 12 pieces for ease of cutting/eating, and an extra slice of those pieces I put on top for a little crunch. Absolutely great recipe!
I too have always wanted to make hot browns so this was a great alternative. I agree with Aquarelle regarding use of sturdy bread. I added some mozzarella in addition to the parmesan but white cheddar would be an excellent choice as well. Everyone loved this recipe.
I've seen recipes for Hot Brown Sandwiches over the years and always thought that I should try making them sometime, but never did. I finally tried this one. Not bad at all! In fact, quite good! But next time I would make a much cheesier sauce, maybe using a combo of white cheddar and shredded Parmesan, and add some ground nutmeg. I'd use a good sturdy bread such as English muffin bread as well.
