Kentucky Hot Brown

We recently tried our hand at making this remarkable dish called Kentucky Hot Brown. A traditional American hot sammich originally created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY back in the day, 1926. The Hot Brown is basically an open faced hot sandwich consisting of turkey, bacon and tomato, covered in a Mornay sauce, then baked or broiled until everything is hot, bubbly, crispy and delicious. Perfect dish for a cast iron skillet.
