Army-style Shit on a Shingle (with ground beef/sausage)
Navy-style Shit on a Shingle (with chipped beef)
The late great Jeff Smith does Shit on a Shingle (the first four minutes)… I remember him from the 80s and 90s… yes, I know all about him… it’s about cooking, kids…
If you served in the American forces, you know about SOS… Shit On a Shingle… creamed chipped/ground beef or sausage on toast. GOOD EATS, KIDS, I KID YOU NOT. Look here, here, and here for how to make it. There’s a Navy/USMC way and an Army/Air Force way to make it. The Army way is with ground beef/bulk sausage (the USAF came out of the Army, so it uses “Army-style” SOS); the Navy way is with chipped beef (as the USMC is under the Department of the Navy, they use “Navy-style” SOS). Of course, if you want to serve it real chow-line style, you put two pieces of buttered toast on your plate, ladle the SOS over it, and put two over-easy fried eggs on top of that, with a cuppa red-hot Joe on the side. Hey, all you old-school vets… this is the BOMB. I don’t have it as often as I should. Did you mess-cook? If you know what I’m talkin’ about, you’re a real Navy vet (mess-cooking is what they call KP in the Navy).
This is a GOOD service memory for Memorial Day…
