Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders Recipe the traditional open-face sandwich served at the Brown Hotel in Kentucky is turned into a hand-held treat perfect for game day. It is indescribably delicious with various flavors and textures.
Juicy turkey, ham, cheddar cheese, and the creamiest sauce are all nestled in soft slider rolls for the best hot brown slider! They’re fast and easy especially if you have leftover turkey or ham (after Thanksgiving and Easter?). However, deli turkey meat works just as well.

I’m loving it
I was trying to think of a hearty slider recipe that I could serve at a Super Bowl party. I also wanted it to be unique and came up with this Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders Recipe. It didn’t disappoint.
This sandwich recipe has a smokey flavor from the turkey, creamy texture from the cheese and white sauce, then salty bacon is always a great addition. Finally, the caramelized onions give a slightly sweet flavor and really makes this slider a winner.
This would be a good recipe for tailgating, picnics, or a great way to use leftover turkey during the holidays. Because of its history, these sandwiches are great for a Kentucky Derby party.
