Make a hearty open face sandwich for lunch or dinner in under 10 minutes.
In researching the origins, I found that this has very little to do with Manhattan and originated in Indiana in the '40's and is more and Indiana dish. Regardless, it is still good.
- 1 jar prepared gravy (makes about 4 servings)
- 1-2 slices of bread
I started used instant mashed potatoes and made them according to the the instructions on the box.
For the bread, use 1 to 2 slices per person as the base. To toast or not to toast is a personal choice, I usually toast very lightly in the oven for a minute.
Open gravy and warm on medium heat on the stove.
Put 1 to 2 slices of bread or toast on a plate.
Put a large scoop of mashed potatoes on top.
