Hot Brown Sandwich recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, room temperature and beaten
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup prepared whipped cream
  • 8 slices toasted white bread, crust trimmed off
  • 1 pound cooked turkey breast, thinly sliced
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for topping
  • 1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimientos, drained
  • 8 bacon slices, fried crisp

Cooking Instructions

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Gradually add flour, stirring constantly, until smooth and free from lumps. Gradually stir in milk until sauce comes to a gentle boil, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Add Parmesan cheese and stir until melted and well blended.

In a small bowl, beat egg. Gradually add 1 cup of hot sauce, 1/3 cup at a time, to the egg, stirring constantly. Gradually add egg mixture to remaining sauce, stirring constantly until well blended; add salt and pepper to taste. Fold in whipped cream.

For each Hot Brown sandwich, place two slices of toasted bread on a metal (or flameproof) dish. Cover the toast with a liberal amount of turkey. Pour a generous amount of sauce over the turkey. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese. Place entire dish under a broiler, approximately 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce is speckled brown and bubbly. Remove from broiler, sprinkle with diced pimientos, cross two pieces of bacon over the top, and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings of two open-faced sandwiches each.
