1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup minced onion
2 Tablespoons flour
2 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley (optional)
8 slices of buttered toast
Add chopped onion and saute until tender.
Sprinkle in flour, stirring constantly until smooth -- about 2-3 minutes.
Gradually add milk while stirring.
Add chipped beef, then salt and pepper to taste.
Keep stirring gravy until well-combined and desired thickness. Add parsley, if desired, and remove from heat.
Pour gravy over toast and serve.
** Note: I substituted thinly sliced beef pictured above, because dried beef is a little too salty for our liking. If you use, dried beef like this,
be sure to rinse the beef off prior to making recipe. The beef I substituted works fine, too.
