Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast


Do you have any recipes from your childhood that you still crave? For me, creamed chipped beef on toast is one of those comforting dishes. It might not be fancy or particularly healthy, but I absolutely love it. Growing up, my parents made it often, and it quickly became one of my favorite breakfasts. Since it’s not the healthiest option, I only indulge in this dish once a year, usually on my birthday.


  • 1 jar of dried beef slices, rinsed well and chopped
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Bread, toasted

How to Make Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast

  1. Rinse the Beef: Thoroughly rinse the dried beef slices to remove excess salt. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Chop the Beef: Cut the beef into small, bite-sized pieces and set aside.
  3. Make the Roux: In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and a pinch of cayenne pepper, whisking until well combined and cooked through, about 45 seconds.
  4. Add the Milk: Slowly pour in the milk while whisking continuously to avoid lumps.
  5. Cook the Beef: Once all the milk is added, stir in the chopped dried beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens.
  6. Season: Taste and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, if needed.
  7. Serve: Spoon the creamed chipped beef over toasted bread and serve immediately. Enjoy!
