I would love the Normandy’s recipe for Turkey Mornay. They were located in 
downtown Houston.  The dish was simple broccoli covered with turkey breast 
slices then a Mornay sauce browned a bit under the broiler.  The sauce was 
so good.  A white cheese sauce 


Hello Charlsie,

Perhaps you mean the "Normandie Restaurant" that was at the corner of Milam and Lamar in Houston? I found so few mentions of this restaurant that I began to wonder if it ever existed. I found only a couple of photos of the dining room, certainly no recipes and no mention of their Turkey Mornay. There was no mention of the restaurant in any of our books on notable restaurants of the past, as well. Sorry. I will post this for reader comment.
