Creamed Chipped Beef

BMOSS

"Creamed chipped beef served on buttered toast --- a great breakfast! This is affectionately known in the military as SOS, "$#@& on a shingle." You may vary ingredients to suit your taste. Don't over thicken the gravy, it should drop off the spoon."

this is not what I remember from the service. Yuck

I have made Creamed Chipped Beef for years and thought I would try this version, too much flour per amount of milk, brown sugar was not a hit with us. Will stick with just making a cream gravy ...
