Leftover Turkey Kentucky Hot Brown


For The Sauce

1 cup 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1⁄2 cup light cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1⁄2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1⁄4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

For The Sandwich

4 slices light whole grain bread, toasted
2 tomatoes, sliced
1⁄2 lb cooked turkey breast, sliced
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
4 slices turkey bacon, crisp-cooked and cut in half


Make The Sauce

Combine the milk and flour in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens and comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, the mustard, and pepper sauce.

Make The Sandwich

Preheat the broiler.

Place the toast into 4 individual casserole or ovenproof dishes.

Arrange the tomato slices on the bread, then top with the sliced turkey breast.

Spoon some sauce over the top and sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.

Place the dishes on a baking sheet and broil, 5 inches from the heat, until the sandwiches are hot and the sauce begins to brown in spots.

Top each sandwich with 2 pieces of the turkey bacon.
