  1. Except for the dried beef, brown the hamburger or sausage in a separate pan and drain off the grease.
  2. Chop up the dried beef and soak in water for a short time to rehydrate it and remove some of the salt.
  3. Combine the butter and milk and bring to just below a boil.
  4. Slowly add the flour until you have a cream soup thickness then add the meat.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pour over toast.

Could not have been easier to make. The gravy came out perfect. I used chipped beef that I wanted to use up. It tasted a little bland so I added dried minced onion, a couple shakes of worcestershire, shot sauce and white pepper. Really good breakfast! Thanks for posting.

Yum! After adding a little onion it was just like Mom used to make. I was afraid it was going to turn out too runny, but it thickens up nicely. Proportions are perfect.
