How to Make Kentuck Hot Brown Crescents

These crescent rollups are super easy to make. Separate crescent rolls into triangles. Divide chopped turkey between the crescent rolls. Top with a slice of bacon and roll up the crescent rolls and place in a baking dish. Place one slice of tomato on top of each crescent roll.

To make the cheese sauce, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour, and cook for about one minute. Whisk in milk and cook for about two minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Remove from heat, and stir in cheese. Pour Mornay sauce over crescent rolls and bake.

  • I used some Oscar Mayer Carving Board turkey in the crescents. I wanted thicker slices of turkey and the Oscar Mayer Carving Board turkey worked great.
  • You can also use sliced deli turkey in these if that is what you have on hand. Either way will work great!
  • I took a shortcut and used precooked bacon for this recipe. I have a big package of precooked bacon from Costco and it worked great.
