In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make an Inside-Out Hot Brown Sandwich.
This recipe was inspired by a sandwich I ordered at Wallace Station Restaurant in Versailles, Kentucky. It is similar to the famous Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich, which was invented by the Brown Hotel chef back in the 1920's. The Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich is an open-faced sandwich baked with Mornay Sauce over the top. You will find an authentic recipe for the Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich in bettyskitchen. The recipe for the sandwich in this video has most of the same elements, but it is a closed sandwich that is grilled on the stove.


Whole wheat bread slices 2 Large (preferably 1
Provolone cheese slice/Romano cheese slice 2 (or use Mornay Sauce)
Crisp bacon strips 4 , cut in half
Deli ham slices 3 (thin slices)
Deli turkey slices 3 (or leftover roasted turkey)
Ripe tomato slices 3 (thin slice used)
Butter 1 Tablespoon , softened



1. On a plate, lay bread slices next to one another and place a slice of provolone cheese on top of each.

2. Next, top each cheese slice with 4 half-strips of crisp bacon.

3. Now, place ham on top of a bread slice and turkey on top of the other.

4. Place slices of tomato on top of the turkey slices. Close the 2 halves of the sandwich together.

5. Spread ½ tablespoon butter on one side and place in a warm skillet, buttered side down. Spread remaining butter on the other side and let sandwich heat slowly until cheese near the bottom is melting and then turn and cook on the other side until all cheese is melted and tomato slices are warm.


6. Cut in half and serve sandwich immediately.
