Ingredients
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chicken base paste
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt, such as Lawry's
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 gallon 2-percent milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 loaf white bread, sliced
  • Home Fries, recipe follows
  • Fruit, for serving
  • Home Fries:
  • 3 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 3 green bell peppers, seeded and diced
  • 2 white onions, diced
Directions
  • Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat and set aside.

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, being careful not to burn it. Slowly whisk in the flour to make a roux. You are looking for a thick consistency. Add the chicken base, seasoned salt and garlic. Slowly whisk in the milk. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Let it boil for 2 to 3 minutes and then lower the heat to medium, whisking periodically until the mixture gets thick. Whisk in the black pepper and browned beef.

  • Toast the white bread and put the slices on serving plates. Ladle the SOS over the top of the toast. Serve with home fries and a piece of fruit.

Home Fries:
  • Put the potatoes in a large skillet with cooking oil and cook for 10 minutes. Add the bell peppers and onions, and continue cooking until golden brown. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
