Another recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, Wisconsin:
It’s Kentucky Derby week so I thought I would share our version of the Kentucky Hot Brown in quiche form. The Hot Brown is a decadent sandwich made with turkey, bacon, tomatoes, and a creamy Mornay sauce, created in the 1920s by the Chef of the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. The Hot Brown still is served today at the Brown Hotel, and you can find many variations of the delectable sandwich throughout Kentucky and beyond. When I came across a recipe for a Cheesy Kentucky Hot Brown Quiche by Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen, I was inspired. After some experimenting with flavors, cheeses, and textures, I have come up with a Hot Brown Quiche that I believe honors the original Hot Brown. While we serve it for breakfast as part of our three-course breakfast, it also would be great for brunch, lunch, or dinner. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do here at Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast.
