  • 1 5 oz pkg dried chipped beef can use 2 if you want it really meaty
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2 1/2- 3 cups half & half
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, melt the butter. Slowly whisk in the flour to form a roux, stirring constantly. Just until it's all been evenly incorporated and the roux's thickened.
  • Slowly add the half & half, whisking constantly, until that too's evenly incorporated and the mixture's thickened slightly.
  • Season the sauce with cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Add the cream cheese, and stir until well blended. If you prefer it a little thinner, you can add a little bit more Half and Half at this point.
  • Bring the gravy to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a simmer. Add the meat, and stir just until the meat is heated through.
  • Serve over toast, muffins, pancakes, waffles, rice, potatoes, whatever you like.
