123/365 Gravy Bread

The first meal I cooked for my now-husband/then-boyfriend included gravy bread*. At the time I assumed everyone ate this delicious treat. It wasn’t until years later I learned it was food poor people ate — a way to stretch the roast from the day before.

*Stack, in this order:

  1. Gravy (hot)
  2. Roast beef (cold)
  3. Bread (white)

  1. It’s a roast beef sandwich – replacing the chutney with gravy. So seems perfectly reasonable. Also, peasant food is often the best food in the world!

    • I forgot to say that the beef is optional, but yes, it’s basically an open-face beef sandwich. (We would probably not have thought to add chutney, but it sounds like a good idea. Or Branston pickle.)

  2. I ate a lot of poor folk food growing up and it took me a long time to realize it. I find most of it still my favorites, though I use more seasoning than just the salt and pepper from back then.
