Biscuits and Beef Gravy
or what’s affectionately known as “SOS”
It’s what’s for Breakfast, or dinner as was the case for my family the other night!
There may be some who will argue rather SOS could be known affectionately, but in my house growing up (and even with the grandkids) we LOVE “SOS” and get super excited to see it’s what’s breakfast!
If you are from a military family then you know what SOS is . . . But there may be some out there that have no clue.
So let me tell you what it is:
It is commonly referred to by those who have served in the military by the dysphemism, “Shit on a Shingle,” a white sauce or gravy made with meat and served on toast.
The recipe in the mess halls most often used chipped beef, but ground beef is commonly used. There are also those who like to use sausage.
The shingle is usually toast. But almost anything can be used such as english muffins or my personal choice, my dad’s famous buttermilk biscuits.
And, the phrase can be borrowed to replace the usage of your usual 4 letter words.
I’ll have to give it try next time I stub my toe, “Oh sh*t on a shingle!”
