    Hmmm.. seems like it may be time to work on a Mini Hot Brown. Used as a heavy appetizer or finger food. Gotta go think on this one.

    I just saw this one made on Food TV Network last night... Bobby Flay had a Throwdown with the Castro Brothers. Castro Brothers won of course, and I think they used bourbon instead of sherry. But like you said, it has many variations, and I feel they all sound good. I know it looked way good!

    ^5 to you, dugger.

    Well, the Hot Brown has had a varied and mottled history. It has more lives than a cat and each different. But the original was a leftover at the Brown Hotel when they had to feed a lot of hungry kitchen workers with what they had left. The basics...turkey, toast, cheese, tomatoes. The rest is history.

    This is perfect! I had a Hot Brown for the first time in Lexington three years ago. Now I make it from time to time when I am feeling decadent. It is on the menu for our Derby party this year. But I think I will like this version better than the one I had in Lexington at Ramsey's Diner. That one had white sauce with grated cheddar on top. This sauce seems more refined... and looks even tastier!

    I LOVE hot brown sandwiches. I have not thought about them for 40 years! I used to live in Cincinnati...we went to Kentucky every spring to see the new horses at the big breeding barns. I took my daughter about three years ago...we had to arrange for a personal tour guide because most the barns are no longer open to the public.

    I love the pictures you take of your food!

    Yuum! I'll bet we could try that cheese sauce from Stouffer's to make it quicker. Thanks!

    The Blue Boar. We used to eat at the one downtown (that should tell you how old I am -- it's been closed up since the late 60s). That was back when the big department stores had elevator operators.

    Lived in Covington Kentucky for four summers (when Dad#2 was a coach for the Cincinnati Reds) and our favorite treat was the Hot Brown. There is something so comforting about cheese sauce, toast and BACON!! Good tomatoes are icing on the cake.

    Thanks Bonzai.. there must be a hundred variations of the Hot Brown. This one, since it is actually from the Brown Hotel is at least authentic, but not the original. There is serious discussion around here of how the very first one was prepared. :)

    Yeh, top marks ole boy for this one:-)) Sounds very similar to the ole Welsh Rarebit recipe, instead of the turkey it uses beef or rabbit & ale instead of sherry.
