Ode to brinner, a.k.a. breakfast for dinner.  One of my childhood favs is a simple and comforting dish called “chipped beef” or “S.O.S.”

All you need is:

1 package of place and bake biscuits

2 packages of corned beef (sliced into strips)

3 tablespoons of flour

2 table spoons of butter

1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper

milk (1 percent or skim)

Start by baking the biscuits according to the directions.  You can get everything else made while they are baking and serve when they are done!

Make a roux, melt the butter and olive oil and sprinkle in the flour.  I like to flavor the roux with salt and pepper before adding the milk.   You don’t want it to get too dark but when the roux is golden brown whisk in the milk.  Reduce the heat, you don’t want the roux to get too dark (we’re not making gumbo!)  If you don’t have a whisk you can use a wooden spoon but a whisk is an easy way to easily incorporate the milk and flour mixture.  Season with more pepper.  Don’t oversalt, the corned beef has its own salt.  As the sauce thickens, add the sliced corned beef.

When the biscuits are done baking serve topped with sauce and enjoy!!
