While we were on our road trip, the love of my life had a birthday. For his birthday, he basically wanted one thing and that was to have an Original Hot Brown from the Brown Hotel. Who am I to deny him this wish? So we traipsed from Lexington, Kentucky where it just rained too much for me to get the pictures I wanted of my favorite places to Louisville. We were on our way to St. Louis so it wasn’t out of our way. One thing I learned on this road trip is that parking is reasonable almost everywhere in the US. Parking across from the hotel was $3 for the day. We took advantage and then walked over.
Can you do Louisville without having a mint julep? We’ll never know. Look at the oozy gooeyness of this dish though, and you’ll understand exactly why the hubs had to have it. It is the perfect turkey sandwich. I say that, because I’m not really a fan of turkey or the turkey sandwich. The Hot Brown is an open faced turkey sandwich that really packs the punch with flavor. It has gravy, bacon, tomato, and cheese. I may have snuck a bite or two.
I’d say that this birthday was a hit. He got to play with his new GoPro, and he got to have the Hot Brown of his dreams.
What’s your favorite sandwich?
