Need Authentic KY/Bluegrass Country Recipes Please!
I want to have a before-party for our local "Hardly Strictly Bluegrass" Festival. I want some authentic, KY-specific foods, recipes and suggestions, please!! I've got the juleps covered (though I'm afraid we won't be drinking them out of sterling julep cups), but am a little lost on the rest of it. Can anyone help out? Thanks!

Personally I love Jezebel sauce on a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers... you could also make app size hot browns.... I may have a recipe for that
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/4 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup half-and-half cream
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
18 slices snack rye bread
6 ounces sliced deli turkey
1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in water; set aside. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; stir in cream and bouillon. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted. Remove from the heat.
Place bread slices on two baking sheets. Layer each with turkey, onion and cheese sauce. Sprinkle with bacon. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
