      8 thick white bread slices, hopefully homemade
      1 lb. roasted turkey slices
      Cheese Sauce (see below)
      1 C. shredded Parmesan cheese
      8 bacon slices, cooked
      2 large tomatoes, sliced and halved

      Place bread on a baking sheet, and broil 3 inches from heat until toasted, turning once.

      Arrange 2 bread slices in each of 4 lightly greased individual baking dishes. Top bread evenly with turkey. Pour hot Cheese Sauce evenly over turkey, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

      Broil 6 inches from heat 4 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned; remove from oven. Top evenly with bacon and tomato. Serve immediately.

      Note: A lightly greased 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan may be substituted for individual baking dishes. Arrange bread slices evenly in bottom of pan. Top evenly with turkey and Cheese Sauce; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Proceed with recipe as directed.

      Cheese Sauce:
      Makes about 4 cups

      1/2 C. butter or margarine
      1/3 C. all-purpose flour
      3 1/2 C. milk
      1/2 C. shredded Parmesan cheese
      1/4 t. salt
      1/4 t. pepper

      Melt butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in cheese, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat.
      Makes 4 servings.
