The Derby is this Saturday, here’s my take on another traditional dish!

baby hot browns
Baby Hot Browns
10 mini biscuits – I find them in refrigerator cans containing 5 biscuits each
Sliced good quality turkey
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Parmesan cheese
about 6 or 7 plum tomatoes, sliced
cheese sauce:
3 Tbls. butter
3 Tbls. all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
dash of dry mustard
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Cook biscuits according to package directions. Let cool and slice in half. Set aside.
To make cheese sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat and add flour. Cook, whisking constantly, until smooth. Gradually whisk in milk; cooking over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add Cheddar cheese, while whisking until cheese melts. Taste for salt and pepper.
Top biscuit halves with turkey, pour cheese over and sprinkle with Parmesan, place under the broiler until cheese browns slightly, remove and top with a slice of tomato and sprinkle with bacon.
