How to Make The Legendary Hot Brown- Blissful Yumminess!
- For the sauce:
Melt butter in saucepan. Slowly whisk in flour to form a thick paste. Cook over med/low heat, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes.
- Whisk in heavy cream and cook over medium heat about 2-3 minutes until the cream begins to simmer. Remove sauce from heat and slowly add Pecorino/Romano cheese until smooth. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.
- For each Hot Brown:
Toast your bread slices. Place one slice of toast in an oven safe dish. Cover with 7 oz. of slightly warmed, thickly sliced turkey. Place 2 Roma tomato halves and 2 toast points along side the base of turkey and toast. Pour 1/2 of the sauce over the dish, completely covering it. Sprinkle with additional cheese. Place entire dish under broiler until cheese begins to brown and bubble.
- Remove from broiler and cross two pieces of crispy bacon on top. Sprinkle with paprika, parsley and salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
