This SOS Meal Has Saved Me 100 Times

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My mom was the master of simple meals. With three kids running around and a full-time job. I don’t think we ever ate anything that took longer than thirty minutes to cook. One of the meals I dreaded the most growing up was “hamburger gravy over toast.” Whenever she said we were having this, it took everything I had not to cry. See, my family was one that didn’t allow you to have something different if you didn’t like what was being served.

You ate what was there, or you didn’t eat. It took me many years to warm up to this dish, and now that I am a busy mom myself, I look forward to making it for my family. I have one daughter that wasn’t too keen on it, so I suggested trying it over potatoes or rice instead. What a game changer!

Now that I make it like this, there are never any complaints from the table. I have even changed the way that I eat it now. It’s good any way really. It’s also super simple and affordable. You can’t really go wrong.

Quick Tip: Serve on toast, potatoes, or rice.

Traditionally, we always ate this creamy beef gravy over toast. That’s what made it so easy. I never really liked it that way though. I discovered that for my personal taste, I prefer it over potatoes. I can do it with instant mashed, homemade mashed, or even just by throwing a potato in the microwave to “bake” it. Eating it that way is the only way I really enjoy this meal. My husband likes his over rice. It just depends on what you like. You can try them each way and find out for yourself the method that tastes the best to you! Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at Nutmeg Nanny:
