I had my first hot brown this weekend at Clay's in Paris and it was D-lish! I wasn't sure what exactly goes into the dish, or how it was prepared, but had heard that it was something to try. I'm guessing everyone has their own recipe.
I'm gradually becoming a Kentuckian! More exactly, a BlueGrassian!!

I like them too. I think it is just toast, turkey, bacon and some kind of sauce. I wish more restaurants here served them!

The best Hot Brown I've ever had was at a little tiny restaurant in Lawrenceburg called "Talk of the Town." It's a combo gift shop/bistro, but all of the food is top-notch and the Hot Brown is unbelievably good (and cheesy)!!

We are new to the area, too, and from New Orleans, so obviously we care about food! My husband is very fussy about restaurants and he really likes Ramsey's. I also like Halls on the River for "Kentucky cuisine." They have hot brown and some kind of local lamb recipe and other interesting food. Plus, it's a pretty location near Winchester. Bon Appetite!

That "some kind of lamb recipe" at Hall's on the River is lamb fries.

Just sayin'...

...And Hot Browns are traditionally made with mornay sauce.

For newcomers, Hot Browns originated at Louisville's Brown Hotel long years ago, were an instant hit, and are flattered by many imitators (of varying qualities). I agree that Ramsey's Hot Browns are very good. I've never tried the Hot Browns at Hall's that I can recall.
