“Marine Breakfast” a.k.a. S.O.S – brings back memories ….
Here’s what you’ll need:
(Serves 4-8 civies or two hungry Marines)
1/2 lb. Ground Beef (ground chuck for flavor) <– I’ve used a mix of ground sausage at times as well
1 tbs. Bacon fat (lard or butter if no bacon fat) [you don’t have bacon fat?!?]
3 tbs. Flour
2 cups Whole milk (add more to thin, less for thick)
1/8 tsp. Salt
Pepper (to taste)
8 slices of dry toast
Now to pull it all together:
Using a large skillet (12″-14″), crumble and brown the ground beef with the
fat and salt, remove the pan from the heat and let cool slightly.
Mix in the flour until all of the meat is covered, using all of the flour.
Replace the skillet on the heat and stir in the milk, keep stirring until
the mixture comes to a boil and thickens (boil at least 1 minute).
Serve over the toast.
Salt & pepper to taste.
