My disclaimer: I’m not from Kentucky, I’m a Utah girl but I do appreciate recipes from different parts of the country.

When I first started the blog, I focused on just recipes that I had known all my life and then I realized how many delicious dishes I never knew existed.

It’s so fun to try new things and get so excited to try something so new and different from my old stand bys! Don’t get me wrong, I still love to whip up a dish that I got from my grandma Ainge.

This dish is so cheesy and meaty that it’s sure to please any crowd! So easy to make. You can make it ahead of time and you can even freeze it for another time.

Kentucky Hot Brown Casserole


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups divided shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded extra-sharp white Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 6 to 8 slices thick sandwich bread, toasted
  • 2 pounds thinly sliced turkey ( get the good stuff)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and halved crosswise

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Spray a 13×9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and whisk in 1 cup Swiss, Cheddar, salt, and pepper until melted.
  3. Place bread in prepared pan, overlapping as needed to fit. Top with turkey, cheese sauce, and remaining 1 cup Swiss; sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Broil until cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
