Can you make creamed chipped beef on toast with hamburger meat?
Yes, of course! Hamburger meat is a great substitute for dried beef if you don’t have any. The preparation method would be slightly different though, as you’d have to cook the meat. Brown your minced beef before adding it to the mixture and letting it cook off.
