Sometimes she would add crumbled breakfast sausage for Sausage Biscuits and Gravy. Other times she would add dried beef for Chipped Beef Gravy and Toast. Or sometimes she would buy Salted Cod in the little wooden box and make Cod Fish Gravy to have over boiled potatoes. There were times she even added ground hamburger for a Hamburger Gravy. I remember all of them being delicious. So when I was feeling a little nostalgic and missing my momma, I decided to try one of her old recipes. Today’s choice was her version of Chipped Beef Gravy over Pumpernickel Toast served with spring peas and tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and balsamic glaze.
|Chipped Beef Gravy|
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk or heavy cream room temperature
Salt and pepper to taste
Gradually add the milk or cream, stirring constantly until all is added, and cook until the gravy is smooth and thick. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
At this point you can serve it as is or you can add pre-cooked breakfast sausage, hamburger, dried beef, or white fish of your choice.
If you are using dried beef or salted cod, be sure to rinse them several times to remove the salt they are packed in.
Makes enough gravy for 10 to 12 homemade biscuits.
