Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast


This budget-friendly standard American meal is known for its popularity in the military. Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast only requires 5 ingredients, but the flavor is plentiful. The saltiness of the chipped beef paired with a creamy white sauce makes this a delicious, simple and budget-friendly breakfast meal. We especially love the creamed chipped beef served on top of toast for a satisfying way to start the day.

Cooking Time: 10 min

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 ounces dried chipped beef
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in flour until smooth and heat until bubbly.
  3. Gradually stir in milk and continue stirring to keep from getting lumpy. The mixture - which is white sauce - willl gradually thicken.
  4. Add the chipped beef (separate the slices) and keep over low heat about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper as desired. Serve over toast.

I have made this for about 57 years. My mom's recipe is slightly different. 1 small package of dried beef-1/2 cup chopped onions,1/4 cup chopped green peppers, 3T butter and milk. Cut dried beef into small pieces. Place butter in a frying pan and melt. Add first three ingredients and saute. Add milk and stir the browning off the bottom of the pan. Themn lower the heat and slowly add the thickening agent, stirring constantly until the mixture is the desired consistency. You don't want it too thick. I prefer to use dried beef obtained at a locker plant. I also use a gravy shaker with flour and water for my thickening. We like it over mashed potatoes.

This recipe sounds like one I'd like to make, since I love trying out those 'oldies but goodies' of yesteryear. I'm not from the south, nor do I have any idea what 'chipped beef' is. Where would I find it in the supermarket?

Have made this many times in the past. First time I was exposed was in the AF in the early 50's. Thought it was OFS! (Out Bleep Standing). Than they changed the base to hamburger. Not the same.

My mom made this alot too, but she always added a few hardboiled eggs to make it go farther--feeding a family of nine wasn't so easy then. Alot of the time she also made baking powder biscuits instead of using toast.

MMM, I remember eating this as a child in Georgia. Mom called it SOS, Stuff on a Shingle.
