There are a lot of military people who would take exception to that as I found out while running a cafeteria in a hospital adjacent to a military base.

Army cooks would make it with ground beef or beef scraps. It was a way of using up leftover meats.

Shrugs, never said it was authentic. Just how she made it.

ETA: I googled it just now and apparently they used chipped beef in the early 1900's. Nowadays it's as you said. I have to ask my mom why she always used the glass jar stuff.

A hamburger doesn't have ham in it and it's not from Hamburg, either.

S.O.S. is pretty good with dried beef. Especially if you put lots of onions in the white sauce. I like to put peas in too.

Those used to be served in high schools here in Dixie.

Yum Yum: was another favorite Ohio casserole. These were often served up at pot luck suppers and every family had a different variation. Yum-Yum-Old-Fashioned Hamburger Casserole Recipe - Penzeys One Magazine Similar to a casserole called Honky Tonk from Maine.

Coney Islands: In Cincy....a Coney Island is a hot dog in a roll with Cincinnati style chili and onions, perhaps spicy brown mustard too .

Porcupines: not the spiny animal...but meat balls made with raw rice. As they cook in tomato sauce...the rice swells and studs the meatballs giving (with some imagination) the appearance of quills....hence : porcupines.
I'm originally from Cincinnati, and aside from coneys have never heard of any of these. Maybe this is an East side/West side thing.

Pigs in Blankets -- usually L'il Smokies sausages wrapped in Pillsbury biscuit dough, but I've seen it with hot dogs and breakfast sausage links too. My favorite interpretation is a strip of bacon with pancake batter poured over it.

Sommerset Rarebit -- shredded tart apple on toast covered with cheese sauce

I don't remember it fondly but I do pay homage to that fish by making a tenderloin tips in bearnaise sauce in puff pastry cups.
yup, you stole my answer, best budget meal! You had to soak the beef to get the salt out.

Supposedly they originated in Hamburg, NY, hence the name.

Anyone got the info on deviled eggs? Are they satanic ?

Minus the peas, if my mom made it like that, I might have liked it better! But hers was plain white sauce over just the jarred beef slices.
