America's Best Sandwiches: Brown Hotel

Pamela Schreckengost

The Brown Hotel, Louisville, KY: The Hot Brown

Invented in 1926, the Hot Brown has been much imitated, but the original is still the best. Part club, part croque monsieur, the Hot Brown layers sliced turkey (roasted in house) with tomatoes, Mornay sauce (béchamel with pecorino cheese), and thick-cut bacon. Served on 1 1/2-inch Texas toast, the broiled, open-face sandwich is meant to be eaten with a knife and fork.
