Well, my stomach has been growling for awhile now, and all of a sudden, I smell something YUMMY! Mom is making homemade creamed chip beef and toast. I haven't had it in awhile, so I'm probably going to end up eating more than my tummy can handle, lol. Have you ever had creamed chip beef? What is your favorite breakfast food?

I have never heard of creamed chip beef, what is it? I do not eat breakfast, I just cannot face food first thing in the morning at all, I am never hungry. I do not usually eat anything until around dinner time. I reckon I would probably eat if someone actually cooked something for me though, it would be rude not too!

Well, it's dried chipped beef, and flour and butter. You can put it over toast, or eat it by itself if you really want. You can get it already made in your grocery stores, probably will be located by the lunch meat wall or something. We only recently started eating it, out of curiousity, but loved it the first time we had it, so now we eat it all the time!

It sounds really nice, I live in UK and I expect we would not get that here, but I will have a look.

Rose - you can make something similar with ground beef or mild sausage. Just brown the meat, add salt and pepper and flour to make a roux and then add milk until you have a meat gravy. I can't remember seeing dried beef when I was in NI, Scotland or Chester, but that doesn't mean it won't be in a specialty market. Over here, you can find it in glass jars with pop-off lids or in vacuum-packed plastic pouches - almost all are 4-6 oz. It's a cured meat rather than raw, so you might be able to have a butcher shave some corned beef or there might be a similar lunch meat product sliced paper thin. We just tear it up into smaller pieces, frizzle it in butter, add the flour for the roux and then the milk. We then season it to our own tastes. It is usually eaten on toast, but can be eaten alone with toast, fried potatoes or baking powder biscuits. Our military used to serve this (to excess) to the men and they would call it "s-it on a shingle" or SOS (probably because they got tired of it all the time). LOL

Oh Yum!!! I love this stuff - any time of the day!!! And, when I first moved out on my own, when money was tight, I used hamburger instead of dried beef! Do you like it on your toast, by itself or on potatoes? I like it better either by itself or on the potatoes and then dip my toast instead. But, if it's served on toast, then sure, I'll eat it. Man - now I'm thinking of this and I'm going to have to buy some at Wawa or buy the beef to make some tomorrow. If you live where there are Wawas, they sell this for breakfast. So good!

I'v only ever had it on toast. I'm sure that I would love in on pototoes, because I absolutly LOVE potatoes. My mom makes great homefries in the morning, and creamed chipped beef would probably be wonderful over it. I've never had it with ground beef before, I'm sure it would be good though. I'll see if my mom will make it with that one day. She was thinking of chopping up breakfast sausage and making it with that.
