In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make an Inside-Out Hot Brown Sandwich.
This recipe was inspired by a sandwich I ordered at Wallace Station Restaurant in Versailles, Kentucky. It is similar to the famous Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich, which was invented by the Brown Hotel chef back in the 1920's. The Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich is an open-faced sandwich baked with Mornay Sauce over the top. You will find an authentic recipe for the Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich in bettyskitchen. The recipe for the sandwich in this video has most of the same elements, but it is a closed sandwich that is grilled on the stove.
Ingredients (for one large sandwich):
2 large slices whole wheat bread, preferably 1-inch slices of fresh baked whole wheat bread
2 slices of provolone or Romano cheese (You may substitute Mornay Sauce, which you will find in the recipe for the Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich in bettyskitchen.)
4 strips crisp bacon, cut in half, so that you have 8 half-strips
6 thin slices deli ham
6 thin slices deli roast turkey
4 thin slices ripe tomato
1 tablespoon butter, softened to room temperature
Lay 2 slices of whole wheat bread next to one another on a plate. Place 1 slice provolone cheese on top of each bread slice. Next, place 4 half-strips crisp bacon on top of each of the provolone slices. Now, place 3 thin slices of deli ham on top of one layer of bacon and 3 thin slices of turkey on top of the other layer of bacon. Place 2 thin slices of tomato on top of the ham slices and 2 thin slices of tomato on top of the turkey slices. Close the 2 halves of the sandwich together, with the tomato slices meeting. Spread ½ tablespoon butter on the top side of the sandwich and place it in a warm skillet, buttered side down. Spread remaining butter on unbuttered top of sandwich. Let sandwich heat slowly until cheese near the bottom is melting and then turn sandwich to heat the other side. Cook slowly, until all cheese is melted and tomato slices are warm. Place sandwich on a serving plate and slice into 2 halves. Serve immediately. YUM! --Betty :)
