Hot Browns

  • Yield: 2 servings


  • 2 ounce(s) whole butter
  • 2 ounce(s) all purpose flour
  • 16 ounce(s) heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup(s) parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 14 ounce(s) sliced roasted turkey breast
  • 4 slice(s) texas toast
  • 4 slice(s) crispy bacon
  • 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • paprika
  • parsley


In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter and slowly whisk in flour until combined and forms a thick paste (roux). Continue to cook roux for 2 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Whisk heavy cream into roux and cook over medium heat until the cream begins to simmer, about 2-3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and slowly whisk in parmesan cheese until the Mornay sauce is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

For each hot brown, place 2 slices toast in an oven safe dish and cover with 7 ounces of turkey. Top with sliced tomato. Next, pour half of the Mornay sauce to completely cover the dish. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese. Place entire dish under a broiler until cheese begins to brown and bubble. Remove from broiler, cross two pieces of crispy bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika and parsley, and serve immediately.
