Sos -- "stuff" on a Shingle
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
9 ingredients
3 servings
After being wounded in Italy in 1944, my grandfather returned home and improvised a dish he was often served in the military. The Army called it "Chipped Beef on Toast". The soldiers called it Something (I can't mention here) On a Shingle, and in classic military tradition, that name was reduced to SOS. My grandfather taught this recipe to my dad, who, in turn, also taught it to my mother and me. My mother, who is offended by the idea of having the first "S" of SOS on her table, calls it Creamed Beef on Toast. All measures are approximate. Because of this, the recipe multiplies well. Heck, you could make enough to feed an army. ;-)
