Shit on a Shingle might not sound dinner-appropriate, but it’s definitely breakfast-appropriate.
The unofficial term—abbreviated as “S.O.S.”—became popular slang among American soldiers during World War II. It refers to “cream chipped beef on toast,” a dish that’s been featured in Army cookbooks for over 100 years.
Man, I grew up on this shit. When my dad wasn’t off hunting and fishing on Uncle Sam’s dime or shooting at motherfuckers, he did the cooking on the weekends. Breakfast for 17 years (give or take a couple three years) consisted of SOS, fried eggs and fried potatoes – every weekend.
I still love it.
