Hot Browns (Simple)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Greg: Barrow, Alaska

I looked at all the other Hot Brown recipes on the site, and while I am sure they are all good, why go to such trouble. This is a 4 ingredient (one of which is water) quick recipe that I got from my mother. In over thirty years I have never met anyone who tried this recipe and did not like it.

I am not familiar with "Hot Browns" so can't compare this to the other ways of making this dish, but it certainly makes my list of comfort foods! Easy and delicious. I halved the recipe with no problem. I also made it simpler by using pre-cooked bacon pieces I get at Costco and keep in the freezer. I used leftover turkey cutlets. Served on toast, but would be great on noodles, also. Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.
