**Warning... this is not a healthy meal. It's a treat. Perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers!!**
Every once and a while, I like to make something that reminds Frog Prince of home. So... while we were dating a few years back, I found a recipe to use up our Thanksgiving turkey. A recipe called Kentucky Hot Browns... using white Texas toast, bacon, gravy, cheese, and butter! Yikes.
Don't ask me why I tried this recipe... I must have been silly. But, silly or not, my hubby liked this recipe and has since asked me to make it every time we have turkey. This time, I gave in. And, tried to make it a little healthier.
Kentucky Hot Browns - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
Thick slices of toast (I used French Bread that I baked in the bread maker)
1 sliced tomato
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
Slices of leftover turkey (warmed)
1 C leftover gravy
3/4 C milk
1/8 tsp. pepper
1-2 T flour (depending on how thick your gravy is...)
6 slices of bacon
Begin by placing the sliced bread into a 9x13 glass baking dish.
Top the bread evenly with sliced turkey and sliced tomatoes (I've thought about adding avocado too!). My hubby doesn't like "raw" tomatoes, so I just added the tomatoes to my slice :)
Pour gravy into a sauce pan -- add additional flour mixed with ~1/2 C milk if you need to thicken your gravy more. If not, just add the gravy and milk to the saucepan, and heat until warmed.
Remove from the heat and stir in 3/4 of the cheese.
Evenly pour the gravy over the bread and sprinkle with cheese.
Broil in the oven for 3-4 minutes until the dish is bubbly.
Then, top with cooked bacon.
Serve with lots and lots and lots of veggies.
