  • 3/4 pound shredded cooked turkey breast
  • 12 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

To prepare sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Gradually add flour, stirring with a whisk; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add cheddar and next 7 ingredients (through red pepper), stirring until cheeses melt. Remove from heat.
