    Try the Stouffers version on a baked potato or over rice. I bought
    it again for the first time in 20 years and it's till good.

    Creamed chipped beef can actually be great...

    I really like it on toast - but I think most Americans use chopped
    dried beef, don't they? Everyone I know does.

    OTOH, "sh*t on a shingle" I believe is the same basic bechamel only
    with crumbled cooked ground beef in it.

    We had it a lot growing up. I liked it best over potatoes as you say.
    Probably because as a kid it was the most filling. I've never had it
    with rice. My mom used Buddig meat and canned cream of mushroom soup.
    I don't use canned soup but I do like mushrooms in it along with onion
    and garlic. It's also good over bazooka biscuits for a fast meal on a
    lazy evening. I see the Buddig recipe includes Dijon which sounds
    really good too. Now I want some.

    I like it best over Belgian waffles. That just really makes my day.

    A serendiptous thread for me. This morning I was checking the pantry for
    things I'm running low on, to add to the grocery list. As I was looking at
    what was on hand, I noticed I had two jars of Armour Dried Beef. I thought
    "I haven't had creamed chipped beef in a while"; this thread had prompted me
    to go back to the pantry, remove one of the jars and start removing some of
    the salt. It should be in good shape for breakfast in the morning; now I
    just need to decide whether I'll have it with biscuits or toast.

    The Armour recipe (follows) calls for yellow mustard, though I never add it.
    I just make milk gravy and add strips of dried beef. I might have to give
    it a try with dijon (or, maybe a bit of Durkee's Sauce), that sounds much
    better than yellow mustard.

    the recipe for "SOS" depends upon which branch of the service you ask and
    what year(s) they served. Ground beef? Chipped beef? The stuff I remember
    from childhood in the 1960's was creamed chipped beef on toast. I also
    remember not liking it when I was about 5. I love creamed chipped beef now

    I like the Myers brand frozen microwavable creamed chipped beef. The
    Stouffers brand is much too much saltier.

    I don't have both brands to compare nutrition numbers against but my
    taste buds remember very well.

    Anyway SOS means on toast. Biscuits are married to sausage gravy. Simple
    facts of food nature.

    I'm not trying to start anything - I don't know what SOS was except
    for what people described here....but "chipped beef" can certainly be
    interpreted several ways, and I was just trying to differentiate what
    I consider "chipped beef" (chopped up dried beef) from SOS. Bite me.

    I'll add a bit to the variation; while serving in the Army (Republic of
    Vietnamm 1968-1969), I had it both ways - dried beef and ground beef. It
    depended on what supplies were available; some firebases had cook tents but
    little or no refrigeration and had to make do with canned ingredients, such
    as powdered eggs and dried beef. More substantial bases were better
    equipped and regularly used fresh ingredients. The sauce/gravy was the
    same, but the meat varied, as did the "shingle" - sometimes, the shingle was
    just a pile of rubbery eggs (reconstituted, dried eggs).

    U.S. Navy, 1957-1963, SOS only was made with dried beef that was
    chipped, put in a cream gravy, and served over toast. On one ship I was
    on the Tuesday luncheon in the chow hall was called "Miscarriage on
    toast", ie. MOT, there was often another word used in the M's place but
    I won't use that. It was crumbled, fried ground beef with onions in a
    tomato sauce and served over toast. Wasn't half bad but I still prefer
    SOS. Nowadays I have to soak the dried beef to get much of the salt out
    but it's still good.

    That used to be one of my favorite frozen foods.
    I'd boil up a batch of frozen ravioli or tortellini
    or steam some broccoli, and pour the Stouffer's
    over that. It's an astoundingly good product.

    I saw that they now come in foil packages like the tuna now, too.
    Collect more glasses, because they may be disappearing soon in favor
    of the later (saves shelf-space, damage, shipping, packaging costs,
    etc...)

    Love it on hot toasted big croutons of rye or pumpernickle.
    I also like it with little green peas in it sometimes.

    Some stores here (STL) have it in a pouch, others carry the glass jars. The
    store I shop most often carries the jar version; probably because it is a
    smaller store and jars takes less shelf space.

    I've tried dried beef a couple of times over the years, but there's
    something wrong with it. The texture isn't what I remember chipped
    beef being.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Nancy, I guess you didn't notice my winking smiley. I wasn't actually
    accusing you of anything. It's tongue in cheek. And I prefer creamed
    chipped beef in a seasoned white sauce over ground beef in the same medium.
    One could even argue southern sausage gravy is SOS, but I wouldn't believe
    it. Relax, already. Unless you just want to jump on the "I hate Jill"
    bandwagon, in which case, go right ahead.

    ....or hard-boiled eggs, chunked.

    I usually buy Buddig because it's not as salty and doesn't need
    rinsing first, and I don't need the "juice" jars, but I love the stuff
    in the jars just plain in sandwiches (with Boetje's mustard, butter
    and lettuce).
