Last Friday, I took the opportunity to treat Mike to an old Kentucky favorite. I found a healthy recipe for Kentucky Hotbrown Sandwiches. I have tried Hotbrown sandwiches on several visits to Kentucky, but have never had the chance to make them. This recipe seemed healthy and easy so I thought I'd give it a chance. I started by making the sauce. I mixed the flour and milk, heating and stirring until it came to a boil. I turned it down and cooked it for another 3 minutes. After cooking it, I added mustard, hot sauce, cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Next, I started prepping the sandwiches. I turned the broiler on and lined the pan with foil. I started with some yummy whole wheat toast, topped it with tomato slices, turkey, and finally the sauce mixture. I added a little more Parmesan cheese and popped it in the oven for about 8 minutes.
Once the sauce was melted, I pulled out the sandwiches and topped them with bacon. Dinner was ready! The sandwiches were great! They were warm, gooey, and filling. The recipe even allowed us to have leftovers for the next day. This recipe was a great choice and will definitely be joint our favorites file.
