Hot Browns

Episode: CCTWD-213FH

For some, the revered Kentucky Derby season brings to mind horses and hats. But for food lovers, it's also a chance to indulge in the region's famous dish, the Hot Brown - an open-faced turkey sandwich smothered in a rich cheese sauce and topped with crisp bacon strips. The Hot Brown was created during the roaring 20's at Louisville's Brown Hotel. Over eighty years later, John and Joe Castro have become the go-to chefs in Louisville for anyone who wants to indulge in this classic dish. The Castro Brothers think they have been tapped to serve up their Hot Browns at a pre-Kentucky Derby party for the Food Network's new special, "Triple Crown Cravings". They have no idea that Bobby Flay will be showing up to crash their party and challenge them to a Hot Brown Throwdown! Bobby's betting his egg-battered bread and apple smoked bacon can out run the Castro's Texas-toast and hickory smoked bacon, but it's anyone's race! Two surprise judges will decide who will win and who will place.
