Kentucky Bake

Taking inspiration from my friend Ellen Eber’s post of a recipe on Facebook, I put together a Kentucky Bake yesterday after work. Once all the ingredients are assembled, it’s pretty simple. Turn the oven on to 350, lay the ingredients in layers, cook for 20 minutes under foil, another 25 without the foil and voila!

Full recipe is here: http://eatathomecooks.com/2012/09/kentucky-hot-brown-bake.html

Some changes –  I used half the turkey the recipe calls for, swapped out Swiss cheese in favor of provolone, and used diced canned tomato instead of fresh sliced.

There were bloopers – the first four slices of bacon were a wee bit too “extra crispy”. I’m not into carbonized bacon. Lack of shelf space to work with made managing the dough a bit tricky. I suggest rolling it out flat where you can, then pick out the parts you need.

Came out perfect on the first try. Don’t take my word for it, ask Ashley!

Get the ingredients together

Preheat the oven to 350
Grab that fry pan and get busy with the bacon
Then start layering stuff as you would with lasagna

Throw it in the oven with the foil on for 20 minutes.
Take it out, remove the foil and what’ve you got?

Looking good. Throw it back in uncovered for another 20 minutes
Ta-da! Kentucky Bake! Looks scrumptious!
…and it absolutely is.
Refrigerated several pieces to eat over a few days.
Thanks, Ellen!
