Kentucky Hot Brown….my version

I made a version of this Kentucky Hot Brown recipe.
I’ve never had a REAL “Hot Brown” but this version looked good. I followed her recipe pretty much but I didn’t add tomatoes and I DID add American Cheese.

KentuckyHotBrown in Pan

My version was small. I used a roll of Pillsbury Seamless Crescent Roll dough and didn’t use all of it in this vintage Pyrex loaf pan. I made rolls out of the extra. I did grease the pan and add parchment paper. (I LOVE using Parchment paper and the King Arthur brand is my favorite.)

Kentucky Hot Brown Ingredients

Ingredients I used are:
1 roll Crescent Dough….half in the bottom of the pan, half over the top. I used more so it would be a “loaf” when done.
Ham….I used real ham and cut it in small pieces
Cheese…..I used Swiss Cheese slices and American Cheese slices
Bacon……I used my favorite Farmland
2-3 eggs, scrambled
The recipe called for turkey and tomato, which sounds so delicious. I didn’t have either so I just left them out.

Layer Crescent Dough, Ham, Bacon, Cheese, 1/2 egg mixture, Ham, Bacon, Cheese, Crescent Roll, Rest of the Egg over the top.
Bake in a 350* oven 15-20 minutes covered with foil and 15-20 minutes uncovered. Let rest 10 minutes before cutting into it.


It was delicious! Smelled great, too. I think this would make a great Brunch item. We’ll try it at The House At The Lake some weekend. Even Matt loved it! I can see how you can use leftover meats, cheeses and vegetables in this to change it up. Yum!
Thanks EatAtHomeCooks for the recipe!

Improving the Avocado Experience

I should have known OXO would know better than I. I have trusted OXO for 20 years to make tools that are not only Universal, but Safe, Easy-To-Use and Convenient. There are so many tools I don’t yet have, but the OXO GoodGrips Avocado 3 in 1 Slicer was NOT one of the tools I thought I needed. When I tried one for the FIRST time, I knew it would have a place in the front of my Utensil Drawer.

Normally, I use a large knife to slice open an Avocado and then Jab that Large Knife into the Pit, twist, and then pull the pit off the knife with my hands or bang it on the garbage can. Safe. Especially for Me, The Kitchen Klutz.


Now, I can use the Oxo tool to Open, Pit and Remove the Avocado.



The main reason I would use this tool is to make Mashed Avocado on Toast. 😉


I received a free OXO Good Grips Avocado Slicer at a Blogger event, Eat Write Retreat. I will buy another one for TheHouseAtTheLake….YES. I liked it THAT much.
