Yesterday, Beast had a new turkey creation on the menu…the Kentucky Hot Brown. As soon as I saw it, I started rearranging the dinner menu for the week, just so I could try it!
In case you’re unfamiliar with the Kentucky Hot Brown, the Beast version stays fairly true to the original, with turkey, pork belly (instead of plain old bacon), tomatoes, cucumbers, and Mornay sauce, which I discovered is a Béchamel sauce with grated cheese added in. The sandwich is served open-faced, which was a first for me at Beast.
This was another amazing addition to the Beast menu, and totally worth changing our dinner plans for the next few days so I could fit it in. I have to admit, as much as I love the burnt ends, I think the turkey might be my favorite item from Beast…it has been amazing every way I’ve tried it, and even plain it’s delicious. But who knows? Maybe Beast will come up with another burnt end speciality that will have me changing my mind about my favorite yet again!
