I turned the famous sandwich into a Kentucky Hot Brown Burger! It’s hearty, delicious, and a great way to use leftover turkey or chicken.

I have been Kentucky Hot Brown nuts lately. I made Kentucky Hot Brown Mac ‘n Cheese and now this Kentucky Hot Brown Burger!

Before we get to that, how was your weekend? Did your team win? Mine did. A win makes for a happy Big Daddy! With all the ongoing saga of life with a fifth-grader, having a happy Bid Daddy has not been common recently.

I don’t remember having a particularly tough fifth-grade year when I was in school. I loved school so I really didn’t have a bad year. Well, there was tenth-grade chemistry. I ended up with a C but that was only because I had good lab grades. Basically, I didn’t blow up the school so I got an A on all our lab assignments which brought my less than stellar test grades up. It was the only C I received in high school, not that I”m still holding a grudge or anything….

I’m thinking that if I made it through that chemistry class surely, I can get my child through fifth grade! I’ll report back in May!! Did you like school? Do your children like and do well in school? I need tips to get me through this school year!

Meanwhile, I’ll continue cooking amazing comfort food for him and you! Like this Kentucky Hot Brown Burger! I mean, have you ever heard of such? The flavors are just too good; bacon, cheese, chicken…did I mention bacon?

  2. Hi! I’m Rebecca from I shared a link to your recipe on my post

    I want to make sure it’s ok with you that I did so. Please let me know if you want me to remove your image.

    I would love if you could share a little love by sharing the post on your social media accounts. After all, in the end it will help you get more traffic too.

    I am also open to other collaboration ideas so please let me know if you have ideas of how we can help grow each other’s blogs.

    Get More Traffic

    In case you’re not already a member of our sister site, I would like to invite you to join it.

    I was frustrated with how much work it is to submit to food submission sites so I created my own site kind of like Food Gawker. The main difference is that you don’t have to submit each recipe. All you need to do is fill out this form – and we will add your recipe images for you with a link to your site (no recipe on our site). We will also promote your content by pinning both directly from your site and from our site.

    Bonus – when you join Inspiring Cooks, you can also request to be added to My Natural Family’s most popular group boards on Pinterest.

    Make More Money

    I make over six-figures on My Natural Family and I wrote a blog post all about how I do it. I think/hope there are some ideas in it that could help you make more money with your blog –
