You can make this plain for potatoes & fried chicken cutlets, or country fried steak. Mix with sausage for biscuits and gravy, or sliced, fried chipped beef over toast, or you can mix it with a pound of hamburger and serve it over any of the above. Lets face it, this stuff is good on just about everything!
