The good folks at Wild Eggs are known for their off-the-charts entrée creations (just take a look at those Strawberry Tall Cakes), so the Hot Brown is a natural fit for the menu. This one comes in breakfast form, and is dubbed the Kelsey "KY" Brown: all of the traditional trappings are on hand, and enhanced by the addition of a perfectly fried egg on top. It's a delicious, albeit indulgent, way to begin your day.
The BBC’s menu has all the typical brewpub eats (think: pretzels with beer cheese and loaded nachos) and then some. Therefore, the Hot Brown made for a fitting match for the ever-rotating house-made beers offered on tap. This one is tastefully traditional, with some cheddar jack cheese melted over the top, lending a spicy kick to this rich dish.
Given that Bristol is a Louisville classic, it’s no shock that its menu would boast a Hot Brown worth cheating on your diet. Slices of French bread serve as the foundation for this open-faced sandwich of sorts, while roast turkey, crisp bacon, and tomato swim in a sea of house Mornay sauce and plenty of cheddar cheese. We prefer to enjoy our Bristol Hot Brown at the original Highlands location, particularly if a seat on the patio is free!
Dubbed “The Hotter Brown,” this one, crafted by the creative culinary crew at the Village Anchor, is anything but ordinary. Pulled roast chicken takes the place of turkey in this version, and mingles with a rich sourdough stuffing and a cheddar-parmesan Mornay sauce. Candied bacon crowns this whimsical take on a classic, and adds a touch of sweet to an otherwise decidedly savory dish.
