Hailing from The Brown Hotel in Louisville, this dish was created during the roaring ’20s as a wee-hours-of-the-morning, post-dancing snack. In this lightened version, We've kept the bacon, thick toast, and cheese sauce, which will surely put a smile on your face, any time of the day or night.
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
To prepare sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add flour, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add milk, pepper, and salt, stirring constantly with a whisk until blended. Place over medium heat; cook until thick (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
To prepare sandwiches, layer turkey slices evenly on toast slices; pour sauce evenly over turkey, and sprinkle evenly with paprika. Top with bacon, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm with tomato wedges.
