A friend of mine that is a Marine over in Korea posted this on FaceBook....man that looks good. Growing up my Mom used to make "Dried Beef and gravy" that was made of thinly dried pieces of beef, resembling lunch meat, and a cream gravy sauce over toast. When I got in the Army the name was changed to SOS (Shit on a Shingle) and toast was often replaced by biscuits or plain old bread and the meat was changed from sliced beef to hamburger or sausage. Whether you be a veteran of the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard I guarantee a version of this was served anywhere you went for breakfast...it was kind of like the starchy glue that binds all veterans regardless of their branch. Either way, it was always welcome on my mess kit/tray/paper plate when I could get it. Just the thought of a warm plate of that on a cold, wet and overcast morning in the woods somewhere brings a smile (and maybe even a tear) to my eye. This is the original military comfort Food.
