Sandwich Hot Dish - Ham and Turkey

I'm without a stove top right now and I'm not even sure when we're gonna fix it.  It's been one of those months . . .with a lot of unexpected expenses.  And then my glass-top stove top cracked and that is now the the icing on the cake.  Or the cheese sauce on the sandwich.  Which ever way you want to look at it.

And now I'm reduced to relying on the oven (which still works) and the microwave . . and let's not forget about all those electronic appliances that have accumulated over the years (that I tend to complain about all the time).   You know the ones . . .the sandwich maker, the Foreman grill, etc etc.  All of them great if you are only feeding yourself and not your family.

This hot dish though - this, this is a different story.  Ooey gooey cheesy.  Yummmmmmmmmm!

Sandwich Hot Dish - Ham and Turkey

10 Slices of Bread, torn in pieces
1 lb Ham Lunch Meat
1 lb Turkey Lunch Meat
10 Tablespoons of Butter
3/4 Cup Flour
3 and 1/2 Cups Milk
16 oz of Processed Cheese, Cubed (such as Velveeta)
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
2 Tomatoes, Sliced

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahreneheit.  Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.

Step 2:  Place bread in the bottom of the pan, layering if needed.

Step 3.  Lay the ham lunch meat on top of the bread, distributing evenly.  Do the same with the turkey lunch meat.

Step 4:  In a pot, melt the butter over medium heat.  Whisk in the flour until smooth and cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly.  Gradually whisk in the milk and cook for 3-4 minutes, whisking constantly until thickened.  Add both cheeses and stir until melted and smooth.

Step 5:  Pour the cheese mixture over the turkey layer.  Place tomato slices on top.

Step 6:  Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
