Last night - waffles and bacon. Tonight - Al's version of SOS, consisting of hamburger, onions, tomatoes, oregano, and cinnamon.

I can't tolerate sweets in the morning (wrecks blood sugar for the day) so the only time I ever taste waffle or pancake is having "breakfast for dinner", and only do that a couple of times a year. Both photos look tasty!

Figmo & Liz: what's the back story to "SOS?"

I've been making my own waffles and pancakes from scratch. Waffles, of course, always hold more goop. Complete control over the sugar. Maybe jacked up with cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, too. Stewed peaches/apricots/pears that were packed in white grape juice makes the usual topping.

Really eggy French Toast does not need to be slathered in syrup. I can do Vitamin K.

I used to make SOS for my family, only I made it without the tomatoes and used a white gravy instead. Quick, easy, good supper.

S.O.S. ...
Navy Styal...
At least me Submariner Father ..told me what it was..

It was how they made it in the Gally of the Submarines that he served on in WWll...

He did not work as a cook on the Boats.. but was an Electricion...

But Dad always had a flare for food n cookin...

In the last year's that I knew him..
He was ah big wig...at General Dynamics..defining electrical systems fer Nuke Subs...
But at night he did Chief work..
Seriously... bout a half dozen fancy restaurants fought ovah him to cook there..

Anyhows...this is how he showed me how to make it...


He LOVED THE NAVY..N..THE SEA..
It really was his only passion..

At Fort Dix NJ in the 60's during infantry training we had SOS for breakfast w/ white gravy & flecks of some kind of meat which could have been just about anything ?? I do know they fed us horse meat once n awhile for supper maybe for giddap & go  :0)  A lot of memories there .

Dave was in the Air Force for 9 years and he also hate SOS and said about the same thing.  First time I ever fixed it for him, he turned up his nose at it until I asked him to just take one bite and if he didn't like it, he didn't have to eat it.  He liked it and it was a staple for years thereafter (maybe the green chilies and various seasonings I put in it helped?)

I was one of two very smart boys in 7th grade who signed up for home economics to be in a classroom with mostly girls, and in that class we learned how to make "Chipped Beef in Cream Sauce" better known as SoS. The recipe was a simple Bechemel Sauce with a package of Chipped Beef thrown in there and heated through served on toast. We also learned sewing and flirting.

Brian T asked---"what's the back story to "SOS?".

SOS is crude military slang for "*something* on a shingle". The classic version is creamed chipped beef on toast.
The best that I've ever had was creamed minced sausage. In both cases the cream is a milk based gravy.

Thanks all. Godd sense of what SOS "could" be!

Brown a pound of lean ground round.
Add and sweat a big fine dice onion, S&P & Italian Mixed herbs.
Add a big jar of Classico spag sauce.

Good general purpose meaty stuff. Toss in a couple cans of beans, etc.

I liked SOS for breakfast in the Army.It got you to lunchtime real good,imo.
Gramp liked to say, "The best thing for breakfast is whatever was for dessert,the night before."
