Stuff on a single (It's a family blog :)

I grew up with stuff on a shingle. I'm pretty sure we always said SOS because of all the kids, but nevertheless, we knew what it was and loved it. All of us. It was flavorful and tummy warming. A kind of comforting, stick to your ribs recipe. And I'm sure my mom loved the simplicity of this recipe,  not to mention the fact that you could feed a lot of people for very little money.


1 pound ground beef
1 small onion to medium, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup butter
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Soft or toasted bread

Add beef and onion to skillet. Add garlic and cook until beef is brown and onion is translucent and tender. Drain off excess fat and set aside.
In same pan melt butter. Add flour to butter and  make a roux. Stir and cook until floury taste is cooked out.
Add milk and stir until thick and smooth.
Add cooked beef and onion back to skillet of roux and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper.. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Pour over soft bread or toast. Plate and serve with a side salad and cottage fries for a perfect hearty dinner you family will love. Enjoy!
