Five Ingredients Friday (dried beef over toast)

It's Friday again and, even though I'm traveling today to return home from Las Vegas (hooray, I can't wait to get back!), I still wanted to make sure to publish my regularly scheduled Five Ingredients Friday post.

I'm going to share a recipe with you that my mom used to make for us as kids. We loved it! I still love it today, but I keep forgetting to make it so I haven't had it for a long time. Perhaps I'll make it this weekend.

So, my Five Ingredients Friday recipe for this week is...

Dried Beef Over Toast

  1. 2 tablespoons butter
  2. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  3. 1 1/2 cups warm milk
  4. 1 (8 ounce) jar dried beef
  5. 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter.
  2. Whisk in flour all at once to form a roux.
  3. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, increase heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring, until thickened.
  4. Bring to a boil, stir in beef and cayenne, heat through and serve over buttered toast.

Optional: You could serve this over mashed potatoes and that's good, but over toast is my favorite!

I look forward to seeing your Five Ingredients Friday recipe! Don't forget to link your blog on this post so I can see what's cooking at your house! Forgive me if I don't get to your blog right away to look at the recipe you've posted. If you link, I will get to you, I promise!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Thanks so much for your participation! Please, spread the word!

That picture is making my mouth water!!! What is even better, I think I have all of the ingredients in my kitchen right now.

Dried beef? I have never even heard of that! Hm. My mom used to make something kind of in the same vein - poached eggs and creamed peas on toast - and whenever I'm pregnant, I crave it massively. (it's cheap, too.)
My word verification word, by the way, was "urrrrrges". Ooookay.

I had this years ago and liked it then. Makes me want to stir some up again! Thanks for sharing it.

Over mashed potatoes this looks like a yummy Sunday afternoon lunch. I've always wondered what to do with those jars of beef, really. I can try this.

My mom used to make something similar, but very different. I'll have to post that another time. I think it will meet the criteria. Yours sounds great!

My husband loves this stuff....I haven't aquired a taste for dried beef.
Thanks for the recipe, I'll have to make it for hubby!
My post is up also.

I love dried beef on toast, i make it about twice a month. It's Shaylees favorite meal, she likes hers over mashed potatoes.

Oh dear. The minute I hit enter I realized I'd forgotten to put the name of my recipe in with my name. Sigh....

All of these recipes sound so good today. Yours sounds wonderful. I plan to come back here after the baby leaves this afternoon and look at every single one of them. Think I may need a new printer ink cartridge!

I think that this is something that Tim would enjoy eating. I'll haveo try it out one day. Thanks.

My dad ate the MRE version of this so many times while out running around in the jungles overseas that he banned it from our home.......until my Mom started making it with hamburger meat instead. hee,hee This goes under my list of comfort foods!

This looks so yummy, perfect on a cold and rainy day. This would definitely be on my daughter Tara's top 10 list. Thanks bunches!

Dried Beef Over Toast is my favorite breakfast and yet, I have never made it...funny huh? I copied the recipe and will definitely try it this weekend.

Thanks for reading my three part "Love Story". I was thrilled to get all of our wedding pics up! You have been so sweet and supportive. :)

This recipe looks tasty. When it comes to cooking, I have a … well, burned thumb. But I’ll give it a try. My 3-year old would love it. He loves everything I cook. (“Hmm, crunchy,” he said two days ago. He was referring to the sunny-side up eggs I burned a little).


PS. Thanks for including me in your Blogs I Read list. I appreciate it.

Wow, this sounds so yummy!!

I don't think I've ever seen dried beef in a can - where is it located in a grocery store? Sounds like a quick and easy dinner though!

Something is up with my blogger today - not just blogger in general - but my blog specifically! How's hit or miss whether I can even view my own blog so I don't know if I'll get my recipe up today - oh well!

Thanks so much for your offer of sponsoring us on our Buddy Walk! I have pay pal if that makes it easier for you, but I can also email you my address if you would prefer that. Thanks so mcuh!

My mom always has dried beef on hand. I've seen this a few times but I've never tried it, I've always been scared to try it. I'm going to have to make some now, I'm sure I'll love it. Thanks for the recipe and for making Fridays even more fun! =)

At 5:55 PM, Blogger Susie said...

That looks pretty good. I have my first 5 Ingredient Friday post up. I have read others and thought it would be fun to join in. Thanks for the opportunity.

At 6:34 PM, Blogger Larae said...

Oh and I forgot to add.. I hope you make it home safely!

i use to eat this dried beef over toast as a kid, seeing that picture brought back memories of being at my grandmother in the country as a kid and her fixing this, thanks for letting me go there.........sonja brooks

Wonderful. We used to have this at least once a week when I was a girl. I loved it and I'd forgotten until I spotted this recipe.

My mom used to love to cream things over toast. Simple and filling. Great comfort food.

I use to make this years ago and just forgot about it. Thanks for posting, and the picture is beautiful.

Love your blog. I just added your link to my blog!

Hi Overwhelmed...
believe it or not the potato candy is supposed to be an IRISH dish. Which would make sense now my great grandfather was supposed to come over from Ireland. kind a looks like a pumpkin roll except reverse...white on the outside and peanut butter brown on the inside.
Thanks for coming over to check out the recipe...
