NON-ALCOHOLIC KENTUCKY HOT BROWN(ha!!!!)...this definitely does not! fit under the "doing good stuff for ourselves" thread!!!

Original Recipe Yield 4 servings


* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 3 cups milk
* 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
* 1 egg, beaten
* 2 tablespoons heavy cream
* salt and pepper to taste
* 2 pounds sliced roasted turkey
* 1 tomato, thinly sliced
* 8 slices white bread, toasted
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
* 8 slices crispy bacon


1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour with a whisk or fork, and continue to cook and stir until it begins to brown slightly. Gradually whisk in the milk so that no lumps form, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Mix in 6 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and then stir in the beaten egg to thicken. Do not allow the sauce to boil once the egg has been mixed in. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream.
2. Preheat the oven's broiler. For each hot brown, place two slices of toast into the bottom of an individual sized casserole dish. Cover with a liberal amount of roasted turkey and tomato slices. Spoon sauce over the top of each one and sprinkle with some of the remaining Parmesan cheese.
3. Place the dishes under the broiler and cook until the top is speckled brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the broiler and arrange two slices of bacon in a cross shape on top of each sandwich. Serve immediately.


* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup flour
* 2 eggs (beaten)
* 1 cup pecans
* 1 cup chocolate chips
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
* 1 ready-made pie crust


Mix flour and sugar. Add eggs, then butter. Add nuts, chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.

Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 - 45 minutes. Test with tooth pick; pie should be chewy but not runny -- Bake longer, if necessary.
