Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 1/2 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Cup milk
  • 3/4 Cups grated Parmesan
  • 6 slices bread, toasted
  • 1 Pound cooked turkey or chicken, sliced thinly
  • 3/4 Teaspoons paprika
  • 2 small tomatoes, each cut into 6 slices
  • 12 slices bacon, cooked*
  • Arugula, for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Melt the butter over low heat in a medium-sized saucepan. Add the flour, and cook over low heat, whisking constantly until smooth, about 1 minute. Whisk in the salt and pepper. Gradually add the broth and milk and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and smooth. Add the Parmesan and cook, whisking constantly until melted, about 3 minutes. (The sauce will be thick.)

Place 1 piece of toast on each of 6 ovenproof plates. Place the turkey or chicken on each toast slice and cover each with about ½ cup sauce, and season with the paprika. Top each with 2 tomato slices and 2 bacon slices. Bake until the sauce is bubbly, about 10 minutes. Garnish with arugula, if desired.

Sandwich Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.

Sandwich Cooking Tip

For a more pronounced flavor, try drizzling your bread lightly with some olive oil and grilling it.
