Military S.O.S. Feasty Style

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Stand up straight! Suck in that gut! Straighten that chin! AAAH! The good ol' days! Come to think of it, that S.O.S. you use to eat back in the service wasn't all that bad, right? Let The Feasty Boys show you their variation of the very S.O.S. the U.S. Coast Guard is still talkin' about!!"

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and maple sausage, and cook until no longer pink. Gradually mix in flour, while stirring continuously, until the mixture is thick and pasty. You may not need all of the flour. Slowly whisk in the milk using a fork so that lumps do not form. Stir in bouillon. Continue cooking and stirring constantly until the mixture reaches your desired consistency. The longer it cooks, the thicker it will get.
  2. Toast slices of white bread, and top with the meat gravy. Garnish with a little fresh parsley, and serve.

What really sets this one apart is the maple flavored sausage. Don't recall the line cooks in the service having that, lol, but I could be wrong. Add some cracked black pepper and salt to your ...

My hubby still raves about the SOS he had while in the military so I had to try this one just for him. I did not have maple flavored sausage so I used regular breakfast sausage and it worked out...

It is a good easy SOS recipe. I cooked some onions in pan first. I used regular sasuage . It taste so good that I hesitate to order it it when I go out. I ate this for 23 years and it still tast...

My wife had never tried S.O.S. which I thought was a shame. I made this one for her, and it turned out much better than the stuff I'd eaten as a kid. It's obviously not a gourmet dish, but it's ...

I did have to kick it up a notch but a great basic recipe. I did add a little Worchester sauce and some beef base plus salt and pepper. Nice, easy meal.
