Kentucky hot brown
Kentucky Hot Brown recipe
This is a regional favorite that originated at Louisville’s Brown Hotel early in the twentieth century. Many variations can be found, most commonly country ham is added and a cheddar sauce is substituted. This is our version, which I feel is closer to the original recipe. It is offered on our lunch menu.… Chef Nick Sundberg
