*Take the dried beef and drop it into a pot of boiling water. Boil the bejabbers out of it for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from boiling water and place on several thicknesses of paper towels.

Push meat to one side; blend flour into butter. Add milk all at once. Cook, stirring constantly, till thick and bubbly, gradually incorporating dried beef. Add Worcestershire and dash pepper. Spoon over buttered toast.

TIPS: If dried beef is not your thing, you can substitute lean ground beef browned in a skillet. For breakfast, substitute browned lean bulk sausage.
