 and cook until mixture is thick and smooth.  Stir in cheese, eggs, and 1
 tablespoon butter. Continue to cook, stirring until mixture almost reaches
 boiling.  Remove sauce from heat.  Fry bacon slices until crisp.To
 Assemble hot browns: 1. Toast 8 slices of wheat bread. 2.  Cut 4 in half
 diagonally. 3.  On 4 oven proof plates, place cut toast with points turned
 outward,  with one whole slice in the middle.  Then layer chicken, sauce,
 and bacon.  4.Sprinkle generously with Parmesan and paprika. 5.Broil 2 to 3
 minutes.  More than special - a Kentucky tradition. Hint:  Turkey may be
 substituted  for chicken. Source:  To Market To Market, Southern Living
