  1. Created by the Brown Hotel in Louisville, the Hot Brown is a broiled open face sandwich featuring turkey, bacon, and mornay sauce. Popular in Louisville as well as throughout Kentucky. Posted by: bagsundertheeyes on May 12, 2008 (1) (0)
  2. I was just watching the Today Show on NBC. The guest (not from Kentucky) stated that the Hot Brown was named because it was hot and brown. Nice try. Maybe he was correct about the "hot" but the "brown" refers to the Brown Hotel in Louisville. Posted by: Anonymous on May 02, 2009 (0) (0)
