If you’re wondering what to serve with your creamed chipped beef, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 39 of the most popular side dishes for creamed chipped beef.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best dishes to serve with creamed chipped beef are buttermilk biscuits, buttered noodles, herb lemon rice, and hash browns. Other unusual but tasty options include buttermilk waffles, sweet potato bake, and ricotta gnocchi. For healthy choices, try steamed broccoli and minted mushy peas.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Creamed chipped beef is popularly served over toast for breakfast, but don’t limit yourself!
You can also go with scrambled eggs for more protein, or flaky buttermilk biscuits if you want a more indulgent brunch meal.
You can always buy a can of premade dough to whip up a batch of biscuits, but making them from scratch is surprisingly easy.
And these homemade biscuits are pillowy-soft and extra flaky, thanks to a special folding technique Wyse’s Guide employs to get all those buttery layers.
Ditch the plain white bread and enjoy your creamed chipped beef over these tasty biscuits.
Why we love this recipe: these will flood your kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma.
Not in the mood to have carbs for breakfast? Don’t worry – creamed chipped beef is fabulous over scrambled eggs.
They might be basic, but they’re a great source of protein that’ll fill you up and energize you for the morning.
And you only need three ingredients – eggs, butter, and salt. Easy peasy.
Why we love this recipe: it’s foolproof.
Another classic breakfast dish you can pair with your creamed chipped beef instead of bread is waffles.
It’s not a common pairing, but the waffles’ subtle sweetness will balances out the savory flavors of the creamed chipped beef nicely.
You can use a premade waffle mix if you’re in a rush, but I think it’s fun to make from scratch and you’ll probably already have everything you need in your cupboards.
Why we love this recipe: you can make a big batch of waffles and freeze the rest, so you’ll always have them ready.
Bread might be the classic partner to chipped beef, but hash browns are my go-to.
Their lightly crisp exteriors perfectly contrast the tender, chipped beef.
Just remember to squeeze out as much water as possible when you grate the spuds – it’s key to ensuring the hash browns crisp up perfectly.
I typically use a cheesecloth to get this done, but Natasha’s Kitchen lists some other methods you can try.
Why we love this recipe: everyone will be begging for second helpings.
Creamed chipped beef is a breakfast staple, but there’s nothing stopping you having it for dinner!
Buttered noodles are a simple side option, but they’re undeniably tasty. You can also try a flavor-loaded rice dish if you want something fancier.
These noodles are a one-pot meal you can put together in 20 minutes and they feature an irresistible combination of garlic, parmesan cheese, and butter.
Salt and Lavender also uses chopped parsley to add a fresh bite to these noodles, but I’ve been using chives and they work well too.
Serve your creamed chipped beef with these buttered noodles for a filling and delicious meal.
Why we love this recipe: it’s budget-friendly
Herb lemon rice
Creamed chipped beef is superb over white rice, but why not take things up a notch with this herb lemon rice?
The combination of fresh herbs and lemon gives it a refreshingly bright flavor that helps cut through your creamed chipped beef’s richness, giving you a more balanced bite.
Pro-tip: let your rice rest for 10 minutes after cooking to achieve a light and fluffy texture.
Why we love this recipe: it’s great for meal preps and can be reheated easily.
Sweet potato bake
This side dish is a stunner but is incredibly simple to make.
The sweet potatoes are sliced thinly and seasoned with rosemary, oil, and butter before being arranged into a spiral in a skillet.
The potatoes get delectable crispy edges, while interiors become perfectly tender. Yum!
Elevate your creamed chipped beef into an elegant meal with this easy side dish.
Why we love this recipe: it looks like it belongs in a restaurant.
Gnocchi and creamed chipped beef are not a traditional pairing but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
You can serve these pillowy dumplings on the side, but I love smothering them with the creamed chipped beef.
The gnocchi’s ridges catch all the rich cream sauce, making each bite delicious.
Why we love this recipe: you only need three ingredients to make it.
Creamed chipped beef isn’t the healthiest dish, so a veggie side is a must to add vitamins and nutrients.
I usually go with steamed broccoli florets to add a refreshing green color to my plate, but you can also go for mushy peas, buttered carrots, or roasted vegetables.
Roasted cabbage wedges
Cabbage is usually used for slaws, but you’re missing out if you’ve never tried roasting it.
The high heat draws out the cabbage’s natural sweetness and crisps up those edges for a crunchy twist.
Skip the white bread and spoon your creamed chipped beef over these roasted cabbage wedges for a healthier and low-carb meal.
Why we love this recipe: it involves zero hands-on cooking.
Steamed broccoli is an excellent healthy side for your creamed chipped beef.
Steaming helps retain the broccoli’s nutrients (because they don’t all leak out into the cooking water), making this side extra nourishing.
And it helps maintain the broccoli’s vibrant green color.
Pro tip: did you know you can steam broccoli in the microwave?
Why we love this recipe: a serving only has 58 calories.
Spicy bourbon glazed carrots
Getting bored of the usual brown sugar-glazed carrots? Try this recipe instead!
The addition of bourbon and cayenne adds a delicious warmth and heat that elevates the carrot’s natural sweetness.
The Chunky Chef uses ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper for this recipe, but you can easily add more if you want to increase the heat level.
Why we love this recipe: it’s great for regular weekday dinners and holiday meals.
Minted mushy peas
Take inspiration from the Brits and serve your creamed chipped beef with these minted mushy peas.
It’s a light and refreshing side, with a subtle sweetness that offsets your savory creamed chipped beef.
Traditional recipes call for marrowfat peas that need an overnight soak, but this recipe uses plain old frozen peas that you can cook straight out of the freezer.
Why we love this recipe: it’s great for busy weeknights.
Roasted spaghetti squash
Love pasta but trying to cut down on carbs? Serve your creamed chipped beef over roasted spaghetti squash instead.
Once roasted and shredded, this winter squash resembles thin, spaghetti-like strands that’ll go nicely with your creamed chipped beef.
It won’t taste exactly like pasta, but the faux noodles have an al dente-like texture that’ll remind you of angel hair pasta.
Why we love this recipe: you can enjoy second helpings without feeling too guilty.
