      I used to work at a Holiday Inn in New Albany Indiana. This dish was on our lunch menu. It was a favorite for the derby crowds and others in the Louisville area. I made it exactly to your specs and it was delicious. What a wonderful walk down memory lane. Excellent!

      This is sooo good. As a Kentuckian, I figured that I should start making Kentucky Hot Browns, found this wonderful recipe, and made it! I wouldn't change a thing.

      I was born and raised in Louisville, KY. Every year since I was a child this is the meal we eat either the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving and again in the days after Christmas as it's an excellent way to use up the leftover turkey and ham from the holidays. This IS the recipe. It is NOT supposed to be a Mornay Sauce. The only thing I do differently is to stack the tomato under the cheese sauce and I sprinkle some parsley on top.
