Shopping List

  • Turkey Breast

Can be from a roasted turkey or deli slices (we have used “Carving Board” Turkey Breast thick slices from Oscar Meyer, 7.5 oz package)

  • 1 lb Bacon
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 Load of Italian Bread
  • 1 Wedge of Pecorino Romano Cheese (5oz - 8oz)*
  • 1 Pint (2 cups) of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Quart (4 cups) of Milk (can be skim milk, 2%, or whole milk)
  • Butter (salted or unsalted)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg (or Cinnamon)
  • Paprika
  • Parsley (garnish only)
  • All Purpose Flour

(Pecorino Romano cheese is preferable, but Romano cheese can be substituted)

Directions

Prepare then set aside for plating later:
Cook bacon and drain
Slice and toast Italian bread (for extra flavor, brush with olive oil and then toast)
Dice roma tomatoes
Warm turkey
Grate entire wedge of cheese
Set aside a couple of tablespoons for garnish at the end
To make Mornay sauce:
Heat pan on stove to medium heat
Add 4 tablespoons of butter to pan and slowly melt
Once butter has melted, add flour:
4 tablespoons of flour will be needed
Add 1 tablespoon at a time; whisk into flour completely before adding the next tablespoon
Once all flour has been added, let simmer for 1-2 minutes
Add heavy whipping cream slowly to pan and whisk while adding
You will use the entire pint
Season with pepper
Slowly add your other milk to the pan (you will use at least two cups) and whisk while adding
This milk is to help not only add volume to your Mornay sauce, but to also get it to the consistency you want, which is why you may want to use more or less milk
Once you get your Mornay sauce to the consistency you prefer, taste - then add salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg (or cinnamon) and stir
To assemble
Place slices of toasted bread on a baking sheet
Add turkey, bacon, tomatoes*, Mornay sauce, and sprinkle some leftover cheese on top
Place in oven to broil until golden brown and warm
To serve
Place Hot Browns on a warmed plate, sprinkle with more cheese, parsley, and/or more tomatoes
Enjoy!

*Tomatoes can be saved until the end after Hot Browns are brought out of the oven to add a refreshing bite to this heavy dish
