The Kentucky Hot Brown

The Kentucky Hot Brown

As promised...how we ALL should begin Kentucky Derby Saturday...with a classic Kentucky Hot Brown! (As classic as can get coming out of a Yankee kitchen!)

The recipe I used for my Hot Browns can be found here at The Brown Hotel's website, in Louisville Kentucky: The Brown Hotel's Hot Brown

I used toasted English muffins, Kentucky ham, and halved the recipe for the sauce...we still had plenty to spare!  I'm full...but rallying...as there's more to come...

Next up ~ Bourbon Marinated Grilled Pork Tenderloin and classic Mint Juleps but of course!

This looks soooooo good, that is making me hungry. Yes, I am preparing mint juleps later. But this is seriously something else. I would love to sink my teeth in it.

That's a super pretty hot brown!! Mine wasn't as pretty at all. Tasty yes, pretty not so much :)

I shall eschew the mint julep for my tried and true vodka martini, but the hot brown is definitely a keeper.

Wow, how cool! It was fun to read the history of how it was created! I've been to Louisville and couldn't get enough of the cheese grits. Gorgeous pics of the hot browns you made!

Loving all your Derby inspired dishes! And I think this would be the perfect dish to eat the morning after all those mint juleps...nothing like a good breakfast to cure that hangover!

I love this sandwich. I've heard of it, but after seeing the recipe, realized I had no idea what it was! I'll be trying this one soon. Thanks for the post.

Clearly, I am just catching up on your posts-- you're a cooking and writing machine, girl! I can't keep up! The BH had the original hot brown in Lexington and said it was phenomenal! Good for you to make it on race day! I wanted Master of Hounds to win... of course :)
