I haven't had creamed chipped beef on toast since I was young, at least as far back as high school. It's been that long since tuna & potato chip casserole or shepherd's pie as well. Or Welsh rarebit, that we always called Welsh rabbit.
It's my understanding that Welsh rabbit is the original name of the dish (an ironic reference to the Welsh being too poor for meat), later corrupted/snootified into Welsh rarebit.

Egad! I haven't had this delectable dish since I was a kid! When we were sick, this was one of the dishes we could expect to be served! It was supposed to be easily digested and good for us!

Other sick-bed meals included: poached eggs on toast, ginger ale instead of milk, mugs of broth.

Childhood memory for me as well. It was one of the few dishes that my father (ex-Navy, USS Baltimore) could make. I seem to recall waffles and potato pancakes making up the remainder of his repertoire.

Even before my days in the army, I remember it being served in our school cafeteria. It was a occasional meal in the early days of my marriage, but the wife and I haven't thought of it in years.

Here's a thought: you know that frozen garlic bread that's sold in the supermarket and goes so well when baked in the oven and served with lasagna or spaghetti? I wonder how it would taste topped with creamed chipped beef? Think I'll give it a shot tomorrow.

OMG, my mouth still waters. My mother (usually aMartha Stewart) would get the frozen Stouffers(?) kind that came in bags you boiled, then put on your toast.

Even better than Spaggetios

Daddy still makes us what he calls SOS for "Same Old Slop", but it's hamburger or sausage in white gravy, over buttered biscuits. Mmm

Stuff like that it's why going home always means a week of dieting follows.

the real chipped beef recipe, not the one using ground beef uses a salted dried beef. I've had it served in anti-pasto platters in a few places and it has an Italian name which I can't recall.

"Chipped" refers to it being sliced razor thin. You can get chipped ham also, though in the supermarket delis in Atlanta I used to have to explain that "chipped" did not mean chopped. (unless you want chipped chopped ham, which I think is a Pittsburgh thing.)

There are other common dishes with "white stuff" slathered over something.

Southern Fried steak.
Gravy and biscuits (plus sausage, etc.)

Who knows when this type cuisine art first appeared?

Perhaps in the prehistoric caves in Southern France.

Up here in Wisconsin it is called chicken fried steak with gravy and biscuits. Or leave off the steak and just have the gravy over fresh biscuits (sliced in half) with a over easy egg on each biscuit before dumping the gravy on. A real tasty and filling breakfast that is the standard fare at cafes around here.

Let me get this straight. We've got a two page thread here of mobilereaders licking their chops over beef on toast! And even more curiouser, gravy on a biscuit!
Obviously a staple for the nation. Now how about I mention grits and see where the thread goes because I know you yanks love grits. Or at least talking about them.
