This is a breakfast that is most often served in Amish homes according to my mother. But my dad called s.o.s and said he had it in the army.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the beef and onions very fine.
  2. Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet. First add onions for 1-2 minutes then add beef.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir well to cook the flour and melted butter,be sure it doesn't stick or burn-stir constantly.
  4. Gradually add the milk, continue stirring until the mixture boils, then turn the fire down and cook slowly.
  5. It should thicken enough to be a good gravy consistency.
  6. Serve over toast.
  7. Some people serve it on the toast with chopped hard boiled eggs.
  8. I am sorry there is no stove temperature.
  9. mentioned but this is written word for word from my mothers cook book.

DH would probably eat this 7 days a week! He said this is the best recipe of all. I liked the easy preparation. I started it off on med. hi, put the heat up to boil the gravy for a minute, and then simmered it for a couple minutes. It was smooth and very tasty!

I grew up eating this stuff! My mom always made it without the onion, but I personally prefer it with the onion. You could also add a little diced green bell pepper for flavor if you have no onions. This is the only gravy I like and it is so wonderful on toast!

Excellent! I made this 2 times, and used dried beef that was lower in sodium the second time. With the second batch, it had a much better taste. Thanks!
