Saturday Sandwich 41: The Hot Brown

This sandwich was invented by The Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, hence the name.

Stuff You Need: turkey slices, bacon, bread, mornay sauce, gruyere, paprika and parsley.

Make up the mornay sauce by melting butter in a pan, adding some flour and stirring to form a roux. Next add warmed milk and stir in until a thick sauce is achieved. Grated gruyere makes it into a mornay sauce.

Toast two slices of bread and then add a couple of slices of turkey. Cover in mornay sauce, sprinkle with paprika and parsley then a bit more grated gruyere. Grill until it's all melted and browned.

 Add the bacon and another slice of toast.

 Cutting the sandwich in half was a terrible decision that made for a messy sandwich. :D

It was a pretty great sandwich. The mornay sauce was delicious and made for a nice, moist filling along with the meats. The sandwich was meant to have thicker bread but we used what we had. It would've been better with thicker bread and if we make it again we would use 'doorsteps'! Anyway, we both really enjoyed it despite feeling that what was essentially cheese sauce is an unusual sandwich filling. It's the first time either of us has had gruyere in cheese sauce and we'll probably switch to gruyere for other cheese sauce occasions in the future.
