    JustJanS's Note:

    This comes from my new cookbook Best of the Best from Kentucky. I made it for lunch today, and it was so good. I understand it's a fairly famous dish in Kentucky and that this is a simpler version than the usual two sauce one. I don't know about that, I just know I enjoyed it!

      I think I've died and gone to Heaven! This is a wonderful lunch or dinner entree - throw in an egg and you have a great brunch dish - I used chicken breast. Can't improve on it Thanks JanS for a recipe I'll use regularly

      This made for a hearty lunch. I used turkey. I have had hot browns a couple of times, but never with mushrooms. Nice addition!
