Cream Chip Beef on Toast is a delicious gravy that is flavored with dried chipped beef. It’s a bit salty and so delicious over toast or biscuits. You start with a simple milk gravy and add the dried beef. It’s a quick, 20-minute meal.
One comfort food in our family is Cream Chip Beef on Toast. It was a staple in our house during my childhood because it’s delicious, inexpensive and filling. My mother was raised during the depression so maybe that’s why she made it frequently while I was growing up.
Lois and I usually eat it for breakfast, but it works well as a light supper. It’s tasty over whole wheat bread from the local grocery store, but it’s so much better over homemade Dillie Bread or biscuits. (I can’t believe we don’t have a biscuit recipe on our site. I will have to remedy that!)
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.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need a skillet, whisk, measuring cups and spoons and a knife. And if you want the gravy over toast, you’ll need a toaster or a toaster oven. Remember to always buy the best tools you can afford. You’ll never be sorry.
