Turkey Hot Brown

A great way to use leftover turkey!

3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
1½ cups milk
1 egg yolk, beaten
5 Tbsp Parmesan cheese or 1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar
4 slices heavy-textured bread, toasted
1 lb turkey, sliced and warmed
4 slices DLM Uncured Bacon, cooked
4 slices tomato

Melt butter and add flour to make a paste. Whisk in milk gradually. Add a small amount of milk mixture to beaten yolk and whisk until smooth. Return the yolk/milk mixture to the saucepan and simmer until thickened. Add cheese and season.

Assemble Turkey Hot Brown in an ovenproof dish (individual dishes would be great). Place toasted bread in the bottom of the dish. Add warmed slices of turkey. Pour cheese sauce over the turkey. Add bacon and top with tomato. Broil until cheese is slightly bubbly.
