At a glance
- 1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped onion
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup milk, warmed
- Pinch of cayenne
- 1 tbsp. dry sherry
- 3/4 cup extra-sharp cheddar, shredded
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- 4 slices of homemade-type white bread, toasted lightly
- 1/2 lb. cooked turkey breast, sliced thin
- 8 thin slices of tomato
- 8 slices of cooked bacon
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
- In a small saucepan cook the onion in the butter over medium-low heat, until softened, stir in the flour, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Slowly pour in warmed milk, stirring constantly. Cook until sauce has thickened to desired consistency.
- Remove saucepan from heat, add the cayenne, sherry and cheddar, stirring until the mixture is smooth; season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Arrange the toasts in a baking pan and divide the turkey among them. Top each sandwich with 2 tomato slices and 2 slices of the bacon and spoon the sauce evenly over the sandwiches. Sprinkle the sandwiches with the Parmesan.
- Broil sandwiches under a preheated broiler about 4-inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the tops are brown and bubbly.
