Italian Hot Brown Sandwich
A variation on the original Hot Brown Sandwich from the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.
  • 2 pounds smoked turkey, shredded
  • 4 to 6 ciabatta bread buns
  • 8 to 12 ounces pancetta, cooked until crisp
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 cups Alfredo Sauce (jarred sauce is fine)
  1. Slice the ciabatta buns in half lengthwise. Place in an oven-proof dish and and toast under the broiler until lightly browned.
  2. Top each with the turkey and Alfredo Sauce, Return to the broiler until warm. Remove from oven and top with the tomato slices and pancetta pieces. This serves from 4 to 6, or make an individual serving in the sandwich pan, as I did. Serve immediately.
