Hi, I’m Crystal from Dangerously Delicious sharing these Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders with you today.

I must warn you, these sandwiches are INCREDIBLE! I tried them out at a birthday get-together for my friend Shea and they were a total hit, to say the least.

If you decide to double the recipe, you could easily get 24 sandwiches out of the original cheese recipe.

I had plenty left over. You’ll want to make sure you pop them in the oven right before serving. Have fun eating these!

To start, pop your bacon into the oven on a tin foil lined baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, flip and bake until crispy. Approximately another 5 minutes.

While you’re cooking the bacon, mix your Gouda, Sharp Cheddar, cream cheese, mayo, pimentos, red chili flakes, salt and pepper together to make the pimento cheese spread.

Slice Hawaiian rolls in half and spread cheese onto bottom.

Place 2 pieces of Smoked Honey Turkey on each slice of bread. (I used Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh)

Break each slice of bacon in half and place on top of turkey.

Top bacon with thin slice of fresh tomato.

On stove top, melt 3 T butter and add 2 T grated Parmesan, 1 tsp minced onion and 1 tsp dried parsley. Spread all of butter mixture on top of each sandwich bun.

Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Uncover and bake for additional 10 minutes or until sandwiches are golden.

Sprinkle with additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish and serve hot.
