Hot Baked Sandwich
Ken is in the kitchen again experimenting with a recipe that he saw called Kentucky Hot Brown Bake. He changed it up a bunch and called his a, Hot Baked Sandwich. This would be a great sandwich for game day, or brunch, lunch or weeknight dinner! A sandwich that is ooey gooey and delicious, hot out of the oven.
The recipe itself had already been adapted from an Italian Layer Bake so this sandwich is extremely versatile. You can make it how you like. Ken’s first attempt, we found was too moist and left the sandwich soggy, so we omitted some of the tomatoes and dried the ones out that we used, with a little with salt and drained them on paper towels. You can omit them completely if you like.
If you popped over to the other pictures you can see that this one is less moist but still a gorgeously gooey sandwich, the eggs form a custard inside the sanwich the top is crispy and golden browned.
The sandwich is baked in parchment so you can easily pull it out of the baking dish to then slice and serve! Think of all the variations you can do with this amazing recipe. It is really quite endless and so very easy!
Try this sandwich on for size at your next function or for a casual dinner. Change it up to what you like inside or try our version. Anyway you slice it (pun intended) you will love it!!

Really cool idea. Looks like we might need to give some of the credit to Ken?

This is such a fantastic idea!! What a great way to enjoy a sandwich and keep your tummy nice and warm too! 🙂
I’ve made something similar in the past but not w/ crescents. I love that change up! How easy!

Hee hee I got so excited about this idea that I pinned it and forgot to write you a comment. Had to come back! I think I’m gonna try it soon, making a vegetarian version for me. Of course, this meaty version will go over better at a football party, and my husband is totally drooling over this meaty version right now. Thanks for this fun idea!
Oh these would be so great for any party! Great looking recipe Tara!
I’m always looking for things like this to serve. Wish I had a piece right now.

Just love the addition of tomatoes, and really appreciate the great idea of salting and draining them first so they don’t make the sandwiches soggy. I also love the idea of baking these on parchment so they just lift right out for easy serving – so smart! I’ve often served baked sandwiches like these at casual parties, and they’re such a hit – this version looks to die for! Totally pinning these babies!
my kids would love this. what an easy dinner idea!
Oh yes! I can see the football crew going crazy over a pan of this delicious baked sandwich. Soggy or not, they would love it!
This absolutely sounds like carb heaven! 😀 I’m not a watching sports on telly kind of person, but I think I would show up on game day just for all the yummy food!! 🙂
We bake a lot this way here in Greece and I can tell you that this dish would be a total hit in my home!

Can this be made the night before and set in the refrigerator? Kind of like a breakfast bake??
Tara Noland says
I think it would be really soggy if you did, with the dough, best made and baked.
