S.O.S.

This is Sh*t on a Single. Apparently Eric used to eat this when he was growing up, and it left quite an impression on him! He had fond memories of "SOS" and wanted to have it again. So we searched the internet. And much to my surprise, it was everywhere. I had no idea what it was. Perhaps my father knows? He was after all, in the military. And according to Wikipedia, that's where it got its start.


If you'd like to try Sh*t on a Shingle, here's one of the recipes we found. We used ham in place of the dried beef. And we added my super-secret ingredient that I add in everything. (Cavender's Greek Seasoning...) It was surprisingly tasty. And we plan on having it again soon. Perhaps with biscuits next time...

4½ oz. dried beef (or ham)
2 cups milk
2 tbs. butter
¼ cup flour
Salt and pepper
6 slices bread


Melt butter in pan, add dried beef. Cook 2-3 minutes to brown. Add flour and mix with dried beef . Add milk (reserve ¼ cup for later), salt & pepper. Bring to boil. Add remaining milk to thin to your desired likeness. Serve over toast or waffles.

Your father remembers these. He says in the Navy they were originally with chipped beef but later they decided they were too expensive to serve so they changed to some hamburger like concoction for the meat. They probably weren't as good.
