Every now and again I get asked to make the darndest things and when this friend of mine asked If I knew how to make 'shit on a shingle' because he had not had it in a long time and 'boy could he go for some' I was thrown backwards just a bit. Most people dont ask for this kind of thing but comfort for some is an itchy sweater to others. This guy even went so far as to have had some smoky beef he picked up at a 'meat place' in Pennsylvania and thats how it all came to play.
Chipped beef on toast, or SOS (shit on a shingle) as they called it in the army, is nothing more than your basic cream gravy made with dried or semi dried meat poured over toast - I made it a bit more than basic with shallots and butter and green onions....I wont go into detail as to which is the shit and which is the shingle as it seems pretty obvious but besides the name this stuff is pretty OK. I made it. He loved it. End of story.
