  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

make it
Preheat oven to 500°F. Lightly grease 4 (6-inch) casserole dishes; set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat on stovetop. Add flour, whisking until smooth. Stir in milk, 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in egg and continue to cook for approximately 5 minutes until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

To assemble sandwiches, place toast slices in bottom of prepared casserole dishes. Top each with 4 turkey slices and 1 tomato slice. Divide milk mixture evenly over each slice of bread. Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and paprika.

Bake for 8 minutes, or until bubbly. Place 2 cooked bacon strips across the tops of each sandwich; serve immediately.

Rated  by sharaleigh on 4/30/2012 When making Hot Browns, we always used a creamy cheese sauce (butter, flour, milk, salt&pepper and velveeta or another cheese) poured over the top. I was surprised to see this with deli-sliced turkey. It really should be pulled turkey -which makes it great for Thanksgiving leftovers.
