The Kentucky Hot Brown, if you’re not familiar, is typically an open-faced sandwich with turkey, bacon and tomato that’s smothered in a cheesy sauce before being baked or broiled. Here the Hot Brown is presented in slider form for one of the best sandwiches out there.
5 tablespoons mayonnaise
16 small dinner or potato rolls, split
1 pound sliced deli turkey
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
16 slices cooked bacon, cut in half
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup grated sharp cheddar
1. Preheat broiler.
2. Spread mayonnaise on the cut sides of each roll. Place the rolls, cut sides up, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Broil until just golden, about 1 minute.
3. Preheat the oven to 200℉.
4. Divide the turkey among the roll bottoms then top with the tomato slices and 2 half-slices of bacon. Place the baking sheet in the oven to keep the sandwich ingredients warm while making the sauce.
5. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, then the milk, Romano and paprika. Stir until the sauce thickens, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the cheddar and stir until melted. Season cheese sauce with salt and pepper.
6. Place the sandwich bottoms on a platter. Drizzle with some cheese sauce and add the roll top. Serve warm.
