Chef Fred K. Schmidt at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, created The Hot Brown sandwich in 1926. Recently Bobbie Flay @ Food Network had a cookoff making this dish which is where I got the picture. It is rich but so tasty. Here are the ingredients
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, room temperature and beaten
salt and black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup prepared whipped cream
8 slices toasted white bread, crust trimmed
1 lb cooked turkey breast, thinly sliced grated parmesan cheese, for topping
1 (2 ounce) jar diced pimentos, drained
8 slices bacon, fried crisp
