Hot Brown Soup

Suzanne Marzano


I made this soup for a different take on hot brown sandwiches from Kentucky, and because I wan't something different than regular turkey soup or hot turkey sandwiches or pilgram's pie. Served with a salad and a hearty bread it makes a great meal and freezes quite well. I just have to remember to get a picture taken before the hoards decend and clean out the pot. I know it seems a lot of work but once prep is done, smooth sailing. Can also be cooked in a crockpot on low for 4 hrs, just stir to provent sticking. For weight concerns use low fat and turkey bacon
