Hamburger Gravy on Toast - Cheap, fast and easy

Hamburger Gravy on toast.
all you need is some hamburger, a little flour, milk and toast... Salt and pepper to taste..

Fry up the hamburger, drain most of the fat, liberally sprinkle with flour and cook the flour a bit to lose that "flour" taste. Add milk, bring to a boil while stirring adding salt and pepper. When thickened, serve on toast..

This is NOT S.O.S. That is made with chipped beef..

That sounds good. I think I am going to try and make that, but I think I will add some chopped onions to the fat before I add the flour. Get a nice carmelization out of them. It sounds yummy and cheap, which is a win win!!!

My mother used to make that frequently when I was a child. Brings back good memories. She always sauteed some onion with the beef. Think I'll make some this weekend. Thanks for the reminder.

I bet a little sour cream mixed into this would be good too.

I do something similar but instead of on toast I put it over noodles.

Humm ... hamburger with milk gravy, onion, mushrooms, sour cream over noodles - isn't that taking this back to hamburger stroganoff?

Don't worry Jeff - no good deed or idea goes unpunished ...

Seeing how I don't like stroganoff or egg noodles in general, for me it's definitely not going there. I make a lot beef with sour cream sauce and sour cream instead of milk was a personal thought. Definitely no noodles in this for me.
