- Cream sauce:
- 6 T butter (3/4 stick)
- 1 c flour
- 1/4 c grated mild cheddar
- 1 pint chicken broth
- 1 pint hot milk
- 1 tsp salt
- For each sandwich:
- 1 slice toasted bread, any kind (thick homemade or bakery bread is best)
- 3 slices crisp cooked bacon (turkey bacon works great)
- 5 thin slices turkey breast or shredded leftover turkey
- Cream sauce
- Melted butter
- Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in saucepan and whisk in flour. Add chicken broth and hot milk while stirring/whisking. Add cheese & salt. Bring to boil and cook over reduced heat for 20 minutes (stir often). Remove from heat & cool to lukewarm. Whisk until smooth.
For each sandwich:
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
In a cake pan or lasagna pan, place 1 slice of toast per sandwich (if you have some kind of single serving baking dishes, use them).
Cover completely with cream sauce.
Sprinkle with a little melted butter, parmesan cheese and paprika. Bake 10-15 min. until golden.
The sandwich was originally created by Frank Blandis. This recipe makes a lot of sandwiches (about 6).
