HOT BROWN STROM­BOLI

Made fa­mous by The

Brown Ho­tel in Louisville, a hot brown is an open-face turkey sand­wich with cheese sauce and ba­con. To feed a crowd, we rolled the quin­tes­sen­tial

in­gre­di­ents into a slice­able strom­boli.

PIMIENTO CHEESE DIP

For a smoky twist on a South­ern spe­cialty, in a food pro­ces­sor

com­bine 2 cups shred­ded smoked ched­dar, ¾ cup mayo, 8 oz. soft­ened cream cheese, 1 tsp. cracked black pepper, ¼ tsp. kosher salt, and a pinch

of cayenne. Stir in 4 oz. diced pimiento, then serve with crack­ers

and cru­dités.

BOURBONBRO­WN SUGAR

NUTS

Glaze toasted al­monds

in a quick caramel­like mix­ture of cin­na­mon, black pepper, cayenne,

brown sugar, and a splash of bour­bon.

DERBY SKIL­LET

COOKIE

In­spired by Derby-Pie’s rich fill­ing of cho­co­late chips and wal­nuts, this cast-iron skil­let cookie ver­sion goes straight from oven to

ta­ble. Top­ping the gooey cookie with a scoop of ice cream isn’t

mandatory but is strongly en­cour­aged.
