Try These Smothered Sandwiches

Bite into amazing melted layers with these heavenly Kentucky hot browns, which are heavy on flavor, not on fat.

Broil up a hearty meal in a flash with Club-Style Lightened Hot Browns With Caramelized Onions. Choose your favorite bread and recipe options to suit your taste buds.


Grab a knife and fork, and dig in. There's no guilt behind these hot browns--they're lightened and full of flavor. Typically, this open-faced Kentucky classic is made with a heavy cheese sauce that would have your arteries begging for mercy, but we found a way to deliver the same richness without all the saturated fat. See how we did it, and taste a piece of heaven for yourself.
