About the music: This recipe takes but a measly 30 minutes to create, but the playlist we have created gives you a whole lot more. Meant to be listened to while watching the rain fall out your window, the songs in this list are laced with melodic electronic beats and downtempo rhythms. You will probably have never heard of many of the artists on this record breaking 17 song playlist, but that does not make them any less awesome. In fact you can basically thank us right now for introducing you to such a plethora of awesome chunage. We have music from Radiohead, David August, Boombox, Emancipator, and a bunch more of my favorite electronic artists strung together in a carefully crafted ballet of song. We are actually very pleased with how this came out so for the next hour and a half just press play, listen to the cool rain, and eat some hot sandwiches, you deserve it.
Cook Time: 30 minutes
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup whole milk (we used 2%, so s
1/2 cup medium cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup fontina cheese, shredded (don’t skimp on this)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices sourdough bread, lightly toasted (we got rosemary sourdough, DANK)
1 lb roasted turkey breast, thinly sliced (we got a presoasted chicken because we are lazy)
6 10! slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
It’s a cold, rainy night. Your home may or may not have just been flooded with 4 feet of water and mud laced with human fecal matter, but that don’t make no nevermind right now. You’re about to make one of Kentucky’s finest creations, a sandwich so decadent, so completely artery cloggingly delicious that you will forget about the 10′s of thousands of dollars in damage to your home. Between the sultry electronic beats that are currently licking your earhole and the cheesy bacon chicken delight you are about to feast on, your luck is already starting to turn around.
Like all good things, this recipe starts by cooking your bacon. So, cook your bacon. We say this recipe takes 30 minutes but thats including multiple breaks for football watching, whisky drinking and, well, you know. Next you’re going to want to preheat your broiler.
For the saucy cheesy delight, begin by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, sprinkle the flour in with one hand while viciously whisking it in with the other. You are essentially making a Bechamel sauce here for the 6 of you who are going to know what that is. Keep whisking for about two minutes making sure there are no clumps. Then slowly add the milk while continuing to stir. Keep stirring until the milk is hot, almost boiling. Use a wooden spoon to then stir in the cheese until melted and blended. Then add the remaining ingredients. Then add some salt n’ peppa.
Now you are really in the mix. Toast up your bread because if you put it in the broiler with all these goodies on top it really won’t reach the crunchy level that you both desire and deserve. Top your now toasted bread with your
chicken turkey and smother it in cheesy goodness. Sprinkle your crumbled bacon on top and put in the broiler for no more then a couple minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn. Top with a little fresh cracked pepper and there it is, your little slice of heaven in a sea of flood water.
