When you think of "Kentucky" you likely think of horse racing and the Kentucky Derby.  If you're an adult beverage fan, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "Kentucky" is our bourbon.  However, if you're a foodie, you may instantly think of a Kentucky Hot Brown, when you hear the word "Kentucky."  This week on What's Cookin'? our friend Patty Millay is redefining the way you think of our classic sandwich.  She's serving up a scrumptious Kentucky Hot Brown Dip.  Here's how to make it!
