Creamed chipped beef served on buttered toast --- a great breakfast! This is affectionately known in the military as SOS, "$#@& on a shingle." You may vary ingredients to suit your taste. Don't over thicken the gravy, it should drop off the spoon.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 (8 ounce) jar dried chipped beef
- 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 4 slices toasted white bread
In a skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Drop beef into hot butter; saute for 5 minutes. Sprinkle sugar over beef, stirring constantly. Sprinkle on flour, stirring constantly. When flour is completely mixed in, gradually add the milk, stirring constantly.
Keep stirring the sauce until it thickens. Lightly butter toasted bread. Spoon beef over slices of bread and serve.
