Lexington is hot spot for foodies

Leave your diet at home and indulge when dining in Lexington, KY.

Get ready for irony, too, as this center of the Blue Grass Thoroughbred industry, where anyone who rides knows, every ounce counts, specializes in the most calorie-packed and delicious of foods.

One of its signature dishes is the Hot Brown, a cholesterol raising concoction locals love. Have a cardiologist on call when you order and eat any version, but especially this classic version from Ramsey's Diner. The image, thanks to . I'll let you determine the amounts depending on the number you're feeding and your daring, but don't stint.

Ramsey's Diner Hot Brown

White toast           Cheddar cheese, shredded
Ham                      Fried bacon strips
Turkey                   Parmesan cheese
Chicken gravy
Sliced tomatoes

Layer ham and turkey on the toast. Cover with the cream gravy. Top with sliced tomatoes. Smother everything with shredded cheddar cheese. Add fried bacon slices on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake in the over until bubbly hot.
