This is a good recipe which I used except for the cayenne-I used black pepper instead. But over the years I tweaked it. Melt the butter in the pan, then put shredded dried beef in the butter. Let it sizzle on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring often. It will develop a better flavor by doing that - and give it more of a chew factor. Then add the flour, stir until 'roux' develops, add the milk and (just) pepper (no salt necessary. simmer till thickened and bubbly. You can also throw in a small can of drained baby peas (or frozen) - like a half cup; and if you like mushrooms, toss some (canned, drained) of those in also. I personally like it over biscuits instead of toast.
