Sunday Brunch: Louisville Hot Brown Sandwich

I found this recipe for the legendary Louisville Hot Brown sandwich (named after the hotel it was invented at) in the American Century Cookbook, the same terrific, historically oriented tome I found the cheese strata in last week.

It's one of these relay recipes that American Century author Jean Anderson got by way of Elaine Corn of the Louisville Courier-Journal, who in turn found it in the files of Cissy Gregg, that newspaper's late food editor.

The Hot Brown is a mighty tasty affair. It's basically an open-face turkey sandwich topped with a cheese sauce, garnished with bacon and sautéed sliced mushrooms. How could that be bad?
