A Hot Brown…Thanksgiving-Style

November 26, 2011

The traditional Hot Brown originated in Louisville, KY and consists of a piece of Texas toast layered with turkey, tomato and topped with gravy and cheese.  The piece de resistance is two slices of bacon criss-crossed on top.

My Thanksgiving version includes a slice of wheat toast, crusts removed, smothered with cranberry-orange relish and topped with turkey.  Drizzle with gravy, add a few slices of smoked gouda (leftover from my cheese plate) and pop in the toaster oven on broil for a few minutes until the cheese gets nice and bubbly.  Top with a couple slices of bacon, a sprinkle of paprika and Italian parsley and enjoy those sweet and savory  leftovers!
