TheHub had bought an over abundance of sliced turkey on one of his recreational Publix shopping trips. He loves turkey sandwiches, but he only eats them sometimes on the weekends, and that amount of turkey would ruin before he ate enough sandwiches to consume it all.
When I was meal planning for the week I kept trying to come up with a plan to use it in a weeknight meal. No one can ever accuse me of linear thinking! I was watching a recap of the Preakness race, which made me think of the Kentucky Derby, which made me think of the one and only time we ever went to a horse race which was the Derby, which made me think of mint juleps, which made me think of our meals in Louisville, which made me think of Derby foods, which made think of a Hot Brown. Which was a long and convoluted path to using deli turkey.
Turkey, shaved or sliced (amount is strictly up to your personal tastes )
Keto cheese sauce
Tomato slices (one per sandwich)
Bacon (one per sandwich)
Toasted bread (one slice per open faced sandwich)
Keto cheese sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup cream
1 tablespoon water (more as needed)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the almond flour stirring to make a roux. Slowly stir in the cream and the water and cook over a low heat until the mixture is as smooth as an almond flour sauce can be (not like a regular flour sauce). Add the seasonings and the grated cheese bits at a timer , stirring constantly, until it is melted and smooth. I added a little more water because I wanted a looser sauce, but you do you and make it like you want.
Meanwhile, warm the turkey (microwave is great for this) and put it on the toast. Follow with the cheese sauce, then the bacon slice, finishing with the tomato.
