While many have favorite ways to repurpose Thanksgiving leftovers, this year, I sought to find the best use for leftover turkey. As a food writer, I've eaten hundreds ofthis year, but there's one that stands out as the perfect dish for using leftover turkey.
Earlier this year, in celebration of the Kentucky Derby, I wrote a story featuring the "," a sandwich I couldn't get off of my mind. In the historic in Louisville, Ky., the kitchen has been cooking up this warm, cheesy, open-faced sandwich since the ’20s — filled with turkey and made out necessity and a desire to use up leftovers.

"The Hot Brown was invented at the Brown Hotel in 1926 by chef Fred Schmidt, the first chef of The Brown Hotel," shares Dustin Willett, the current executive chef at The Brown Hotel. "In the 1920s, The Brown Hotel hosted around 1200 guests for dinner dances. In the early hours of the morning, the kitchen team would cook for these guests. Chef Schmidt grew tired of the traditional fare of ham and eggs and created the Hot Brown. It was an instant classic, and the rest is history."
Almost 100 years later, this sandwich is still an icon. Rapper, a Louisville native, mentioned the dish in his song "Route 66," and today people — myself included — still travel from hundreds of miles away to try the famous sandwich.
On a recent trip to Louisville, it was one of my must-have meals. Although restaurants around the city pay homage to the original with their own take on the sandwich, I was dedicated to trying it in its birthplace.
A Second World War sea fort off the English coast was sold for about $580,000 at an auction. Take a look.
The Grade II-listed sea fort off Lincolnshire in northern England could be turned into a luxury hotel, restaurant, Airbnb or retreat.
The meal came out in a small cast iron dish, just large enough to hold the sandwich and the river of Mornay sauce (a béchamel sauce with shredded or grated cheese added) smothering the top. The scent filled the room and made this simple dish absolutely irresistible.
Cutting through the layers of tomatoes, bacon, sauce, turkey and bread, I prepared the perfect bite, with just a bit of everything. The thick, toasted bread serves as the perfect base, while the turkey, often thought of as a dryer cut of meat, stays perfectly moist under its blanket of rich, cheesy sauce. The fat and crunch from the bacon added flavor and texture, and the warm Roma tomatoes added the perfect bit of acidity to cut through it all. With a sprinkle of pecorino Romano cheese to finish, this sandwich truly takes simple ingredients and turns them into something decadent.
This recipe has withstood the test of time, and The Brown Hotel shares it proudly on their, so fans and those who have yet to try this delightful sandwich can recreate it at home.
Simple and easy to follow, utilizing ingredients most already have on hand, this delicious dish is the perfect way to turn cold, leftover turkey into a new meal you and your family will enjoy. My only warning is to be prepared, as it might outshine the holiday meal.

Get the recipe for a hot brown below.
The Hot Brown
2 ounces butter
2 ounces all-purpose flour
8 ounces heavy cream
8 ounces whole milk
½ cup of pecorino Romano cheese, plus 1 tablespoon for garnish
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper
14 ounces sliced roasted turkey breast, sliced thick
4 slices of Texas toast, crust trimmed
4 slices of crispy bacon
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced in half
In a two‑quart saucepan, melt butter and slowly whisk in flour until combined and forms a thick paste (roux).
Continue to cook roux for two minutes over medium‑low heat, stirring frequently.
Whisk heavy cream and whole milk into the roux and cook over medium heat until the cream begins to simmer, about 2‑3 minutes.
Remove sauce from heat and slowly whisk in pecorino Romano cheese until the Mornay sauce is smooth.
Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.
For each hot brown, place two slices of toast with the crusts cut off in an oven-safe dish: one slice is cut in half corner to corner to make two triangles and the other slice is left in a square shape. Then cover with 7 ounces of turkey.
Take the two halves of Roma tomato and two toast points and set them alongside the base of the turkey and toast.
Next, pour one half of the Mornay sauce to completely cover the dish. Sprinkle with additional pecorino Romano cheese.
Place the entire dish under a broiler until cheese begins to brown and bubble. Remove from broiler, cross two pieces of crispy bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika and parsley and serve immediately.
