    HokiesMom's Note:

    I prefer to use the dried beef from a local deli - ask to have it paper-thin sliced or chipped. I serve this over toasted wheat bread for my DH but it is also good served over a oven-baked russet potato. I found this recipe in the Fannie Farmer Cookbook.

      This reminds me of what I used to eat as a kid. I had to add some extra salt (personal preference) and I used Budding Beef rather than the jar of beef from a pricing standpoint (probably the reason I had to add more salt). Thank you so much for sharing this! Oh -- also, for us, it made more than to top 4 pieces of regular toast...

      Fantastic. DH loved it, and thinks it might be better than biscuits and gravy. I used all the pepper. Tagged in everyday's a holiday, glad I did. Thanks, Hokie

      Very good and easy to make. I doubled the recipe but only used half the pepper that was indicated. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. My whole family enjoyed this for breakfast this morning.
