My mom used to make this; I believe it was a relatively cost effective dinner and considering there were seven kids, price is always an issue. Dave had never heard of this however. So I decided to create my own version of the. Give it a try and let me know what you think; I'm quite happy with this recipe and will make it again. This was Dave friendly too!
Sautee ½ lb ground turkey. Rather than beef or chipped beef I went with the lighter turker, but I find ground turkey quite flavorless, so it requires a lot of seasoning! Continue to sautee with onions, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, salt and pepper. (Now, here is an addition of my own - add in some left over rice if you have some around. Also adding some olives and celery gave this a nice flavor!
Add skim milk, butter, milk and cream, simmering until thick. Toast two pieces of hearty bread, I used a french bread, then place the toast on a plate. Cover with a good helping of the mixture. Top with a little fresh Parmesan cheese. Now you see why it's called Sh*t on a Shingle! Enjoy anyway!
