A savory, creamy open-faced sandwich.


  • cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch of grated nutmeg, Kosher salt, and pepper
  • 16 slices DLM Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 8 1/2-inch thick slices DLM Artisan Bread, such as Turkey Red Wheat
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 lbs roast turkey breast, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • cups shredded white Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp chopped chived and parsley, for garnish


Preheat oven to 425°F.
Arrange the bacon on a rack set over a baking sheet, cook until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.
In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk over moderate heat for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the hot milk and bring to a boil. Cook, whisking until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in both cheeses until melted. Stir in the nutmeg and season with salt and pepper.
Preheat the broiler. Arrange the tomato slices on a baking sheet, drizzle with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil 6 inches from the heat until lightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes per side; keep warm.
Arrange the bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and spread each slice with 1/2 Tbsp of the butter; season with salt and pepper. Broil until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Flip the bread and toast for 1 minute.
Top each toast with some turkey and a couple slices of tomato. Spoon the sauce on top and sprinkle on both cheeses. Broil until the cheese is melted and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
Transfer the sandwiches to plates and top with the bacon. Garnish with chopped chives and parsley and serve hot.
