I think this was a sandwich that was originally on the menu at The Brown Hotel in Louisville,Ky.I first heard of it on a local news cooking segment.Here in Dallas we have premiere chef named Dean Fearing from the famous restaurant called "The Mansion on Turtle Creek". This is Chef Dean's "Texas" style Original Hot Brown.

Hubby liked it, but it was too spicy for me. I would try it again with regular monterey jack.
I made this for potluck using leftover Thanksgiving bird. Nobody said "turkey again!" I made the sauce using pepperjack for the monterey jack. I did leave off the tomato because of a few fussy eaters, but everyone enjoyed this. Though it doesn't say in the recipe, I cut the turkey into bite size pieces and crumbled the bacon and sprinkled it over the sauce for easier serving. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting a keeper!
