Marcus makes us Hot Browns every Derby Day. I wish it was more often.
A "Hot Brown" is an open-faced turkey and bacon sandwich, smothered in a white sauce and grilled in a skillet. Tomatoes and parsley are added "for looks" as I say. ;o) This sandwich was made famous by the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.
This year Marcus made the sauce using parmesan instead of the usual Romano (which, given my Sicilian roots, I love). The sauce was more subtle but still fantastic! I think he would say that these were the best Hot Browns yet.
Turkey from New Seasons, sliced thin. Bacon from Costco. I believe Marcus used my homemade 5-grain bread, which toasts up beautifully. Homemade white sauce (I have no idea how he does it).
Aren't I lucky to have such a great chef for a husband??? <3 <3
