Kimmi's notes for this recipe:
This has many different names:
Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast
S.O.S. ($h!t On A Shingle)

And my way...I made a few delish changes. Added a piece of cheese & a gooey fried egg on top! Before you eat it, break that yolk so it goes all over, hence the Bird Doo On A Shingle - LOL!
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion & cook until softened, about 1 minute. Stir in 4 tbsp flour, mustard, thyme, cayenne & pepper & cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in 1/2 & 1/2, milk, water. Bring to simmer & cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 6 - 8 minutes.

NOTE: If not getting thick enough, add more flour 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistantcy.
Stir beef & nutmeg into sauce & cook until beef is heated through, about 2 minutes.
If desired, fry egg until yolk is still gooey - VERY IMPORTANT!
Toast the bread, place cheese slice on top & spoon mixture over, sprinkle with chives & place egg over top. Serve & enjoy!
