Recipe Idea: Cream Chip Beef on Toast
Don here, telling you about a family favorite, Cream Chip Beef on Toast. My mother was raised during the depression so maybe that’s why she cooked and still loves food like cream chip beef on toast. We had it regularly while I was growing up and now when I visit Mom this is one of the meals she enjoys.
Lois and I usually have it for breakfast, but it works well as a light supper. Since we have been away for the past several weekends and have not had time to bake, this morning we had it over whole wheat bread from the local grocery store. It was indeed tasty, but we really like it over home made Dillie Bread.
This is a simple dish of white milk gravy with chip beef cut in strips and mixed in. It is naturally salty so be careful how much (if any) salt you add to the gravy. My recipe doesn’t call for any salt. I think there is plenty in it just from the meat.
You’re gonna wanna eat this.
