Hot Brown Sandwiches



  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups turkey or chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 12 slices toasted bread
  • Sliced turkey (enough for 6 sandwiches)
  • Paprika
  • 12 slices tomatoes
  • 12 slices bacon, cooked
  • Directions

    In medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Blend in flour stirring until smooth. Stir in salt and pepper. Gradually add broth and milk. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Add grated cheese; simmer for about 8 minutes. Sauce will be quite thick. Arrange 2 slices of toast on each of 6 ovenproof plates. Top each slice of toast with turkey slices, cover with sauce, then sprinkle with a little paprika. Top each with a slice of tomato and a slice of cooked bacon. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serves 6.
