Hot Brown Turkey Sandwiches

We had a great Thanksgiving in Colorado with Tims' parents. I made 5 yummy pies to help out, plus I haven't baked anything serious in a couple of months so it was definitely fun to get back into it for the holidays!


I've been wanting to make this recipe for about 3 years now. It's the perfect opportunity since we were given an entire fried turkey from Rick. I also plan to use some of it for enchilada soup, replacing the chicken of course.

Hot Brown Turkey Sandwiches
Recipe from Food Network



1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/4 cups chicken stock
1 cup muenster, shredded
salt and pepper





white bread, thickly sliced
dijon mustard
tomato, sliced
sliced roast turkey
bacon, cooked
parsley, chopped {fresh}

  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the onions until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, 1 more minute. Add the milk and chicken stock and bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the bread on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread each slice with mustard, then drizzle with some of the gravy and top with sliced tomato. Toss the turkey with the remaining gravy in the skillet. Divide the turkey evenly among the bread slices, then sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. 
  • Broil until golden, about 2 minutes.
  • Crumble the bacon over the sandwiches and sprinkle with the parsley.


Enjoy!
