 The Kentucky Hot Brown is an open-faced turkey sandwich topped with bacon and Mornay sauce and then baked until the bread is crispy and the cheesy sauce browns - is not actually named after the finished product's coloring. It was created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky in the 1920's.You don't need to make a special roasted turkey breast for these sandwiches; slices of leftover roasted turkey are equally as scrumptious.
