Default How Do You Make Your SOS ???

You can make it with sausage or chipped beef. I use 1/3 cup of flour, 2 cups of 2% milk, dash of coarse pepper, butter to taste and about a tblspoon of Worcestershire sauce along with a bottle of Hormel chipped beef.

Combine the milk & flour together while cold and place over med to low heat (stirring constantly). You may need to add a little more flour for thickness. Add in butter, worcestire sauce & pepper and chipped beef (cut into strips) when sauce starts to thicken. Reduce heat and let the ingredients simmer for a couple of minutes..then...YUMMO...

Feeds about 2-4 people depending on how hungry you are. Of course, go slowly and season to your own taste.

I just do a basic white sauce and the Hormel chipped beef, spoon over some toast.... I love it - we used to have it occasionally when I was a child. I've made it a few times over the years - only if I'm the only one home....DH and DS both have sensitive tummies and don't always do well with butter based sauces...

I used to run a cafeteria near an army base. We made our SOS with chipped beef. A lot of the NCOs told me that they were more used to seeing SOS made with ground beef or any chopped beef that was left over or that they had in the field kitchen. As much as they told me how "bad" it was, these guys always spoke about it with a certain fondness. (Much like some elderly Brits speak with fondness of Spam during the war.)

What is the difference between SOS made with sausage and biscuits and gravy.

I used Buddig Dried beef. Cook it in some butter until it's starting to turn crunchy. Toss in some flour and cook. Add salt, pepper, and milk. Cook until thick and bubbly. Serve it over toast that has been torn or cut into small pieces.

Um-m-m-m, the SOS is the gravy and you can put it over whatever your tummy can take. Feel free not to use any meat at all if you wish. Season according to taste.

I've acquired a taste for whole wheat bread after my doctor told me to stop eating white bread.

DF.....I like whole wheat bread also. Only thing I miss is using white bread for grilled cheese sandwiches!

I like your recipe for SOS. Better than the one I was given many years ago.

That's about how I make it, but I like it over Pepperidge Farm pattie shells.
