P S I won't touch Pork Roll, just for the nick-name it gained during my service days. I love S-O-S, but can't even think about eating "DONKEY DI*K!"


Please don't tell me you ate all of that.

    There's a restaurant named Morgan's in Allentown, PA that serves a good crab hash as a breakfast side dish.

          Is that sos or biscuts and sausage gravy? Whichever, it looks like a delicious midmorning snack.

            I sincerely hope you don't eat like that very often. A very quick calculation shows 3600 calories, 250 grams of fat, 450mg cholesterol. The sodium is incalculably high. Seriously, there's a difference between eating a nice meal and suicide by food!

                You are correct it is sausage gravy with some pretty fair biscuits.

                As for the dietary comments...

                      Watched a Travel channel show the other night that featured "Taylor Ham"--the product was described as "pork roll" but looked to me exactly like Spam. I know I've admitted that I don't know what "pork roll" is, but would someone expand on the subject. Is it processed meat like spam, really salty ham, or it depends on the area????

                              [url='http://www.lyricsdownload.com/ween-pork-roll-egg-and-cheese-lyrics.html']Pork Roll Egg And Cheese[/url], by Ween. It's the classic NJ sandwich. Pork roll's got a texture like fried bologna, a taste like mild Spam. Taylor Ham is the same thing, made by the Taylor company. Other companies make it, too. It's never eaten cold, like a cold cut, always fried in a pan or grilled.

                                It depends. For civilians it is creamed chipped beef. In the service it is ground beef in a cream sauce served over toast. At least, that's what it was when I was in the service.

                                    Steve,
                                    SOS is the slang term used in the military to label one of the basic breakfast dishes. "CREAMED CHIPPED BEEF ON TOAST". While the real deal used the dried little pieces of thin sliced (and quite salty) beef, most places today used ground beef (or some other meat ground up) to add to the peppery white gravy. Replace that ground meat with ground Sausage and put it on Biscuits and you have another traditional breakfast menu item.

                                    The 'nickname' has been around for so long, and is used so often as a term of endearment NOT insult, that many places simply label the menu item as S O S rather than write-out the longer description.
                                    Sorry for the duplication of information. Hoffman is talking about food served in the Union Army, I served in the 20th century !!

                                      This country cookin' sounds good. It's reminds of the old Charlie Daniels tune "The South's Gonna Do It Again"

                                        I actually like turkey bacon best. Country ham is also good, as is well made maple sausage.

                                              Stouffer's makes a frozen food like that and it's not that bad either.


                                              I have bought the Stouffer's frozen chipped beef many times and it is great over toast.

                                              I always enhance it by adding more black pepper.

                                              Thanks for reminding me of the product. I have not bought it in several months.

                                                I don't know when it acquired the SOS name.I'd guess, though, that the reason it did might have had something to do with the way it looks.

                                                  When I was in the Air Force, we had it everymorning and a lot for lunch.

                                                  I think due to it being available at almost every meal, the terminology SOS came into play.

                                                  I sort of enjoyed it. I think I had it about everyday myself. It seems about eveyone I knew had it.

                                                    I remember in the '70's going to a conference and staying at the Brown Hotel. My breakfast looked like that. Those people really knew how to cook. And the signature sandwich was to die for. Thank God for Louisville.

                                                        I had been told that goetta was very similar to scrapple, except made with oatmeal rather than cornmeal. I didn't get a chance to try it until about ten years ago, when I finally saw "eggs with goetta" listed on the chalkboard menu at a small family restaurant in rural Pennsylvania. The goetta slices were crisply browned on the outside, tender on inside, and were accompanied by both honey and syrup. I thought it was delicious.

                                                          I did think of something closee to meat I like at breakfast...pork brains mixed w/ scrambled eggs.
