Shit On A Shingle (Creamed Chipped Beef on toast)
Shit On A Shingle is the ultimate comfort meal that’s fast and inexpensive. Also called SOS, it’s a classic American military dish made with creamed chipped beef, and served over toast. This is a healthier version with lighter creamy white sauce. This recipe makes enough for 1 person for lunch or light dinner.
Servings 1 person
- 2 oz dried beef *
- 2 teaspoons butter unsalted
- 2 teaspoons all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup milk
- ground black pepper to taste
- 2 slices bread
Chop the dried beef into bite size pieces.
Melt butter in a saucepan or skillet over medium-low heat.
Once melted, add in the flour. Whisk constantly for 2-3 minutes until completely combined and the flour is cooked.
Add ground pepper and milk. Cook until smooth and creamy.
Add the chopped beef pieces and simmer for 3-5 minutes. If your white sauce is getting too thick, you can add extra milk (1/4 cup at a time). Cook until it reaches your desired consistency.
Remove from the heat and serve over toast.
- *If your dried beef is very salty, you can soak them in hot water for 10 minutes before cooking.
