Kentucky Hot Brown Turkey Sandwich Recipe

The Kentucky hot brown sandwich has been a tradition since its creation in 1926. Fred K. Schmidt, a chef for Louisville's Brown Hotel, initially made the dish for patrons to enjoy after an evening of dinner and dancing. The open-face sandwich starts with a slice of toast. 

The toast is the base for layers of turkey, sliced tomatoes, a Parmesan cheese sauce, and extra grated Parmesan cheese. Place the sandwich on an oven-safe pan or dish and broil it just until the cheese is bubbly and browned. For a traditional hot brown, place two strips of bacon on it just before serving. This version uses a combination of Parmesan and cheddar cheese. Make these sandwiches for a sandwich supper or luncheon, or prepare them for a game-day snack.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (grated, divided)
  • 8 slices toast (crusts trimmed)
  • 1 pound turkey (deli or leftover, cooked turkey, thinly sliced)
  • 4 slices tomato (more if small)
  • 8 strips bacon (crisply cooked and drained)
