A number of years ago (back in the 70's), San Francisco's own Marine Artillery General (Brigadier) Tiago, requested/ordered that a recipe for the Marine Corps famous S.O.S. (creamed beef on toast) be developed so that it could be serve to a small group of about eight persons, this way the general could have his wife make it at home. The official recipe for the mess halls is for serving 300 or more. This challenge was taken up by his chief field artillery cook, MSgt Bernie Parker. After many tries and a few mistakes "Top" Parker came up with the following, near perfect, recipe.
Recipe for "Marine Breakfast" Camp Lejeune SOS.... (Serves 8, or two hungry Marines)
1/2 lb. Ground Beef (ground chuck for flavor)
1 tbs. Bacon fat (lard/Crisco or butter)
3 tbs. Flour
2 cups Whole milk (add more milk if you want it thinner)
1/8 tsp. each of Salt and Pepper (to taste)
8 slices of dry toast
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 a minimum of 1 minute). Serve over the toast. Salt & pepper to taste.

REAL Chicken Noodle Soup
1 pkg boneless skinless chicken breast
2 boxes and 1 can of chicken broth
4 sticks of celery
1-2 Tbsp poultry seasoning
1/2 bag of egg noodles
salt & pepper to taste
In a large pot cook chicken in chicken broth. Once almost all the way cooked through, take chicken out and put in vegetables. Cut up the chicken while the veggies are cookin. Meanwhile in a separate pot, boil your egg noodles. Once the chicken is cut up, put it back in the broth.
Season the broth with the poultry seasoning and salt & pepper. Strain egg noodles and add to the pot. Make sure you taste it after you add the egg noodles b/c it tends to "water it down." Salt & Pepper to taste.
Serve with biscuits or cornbread

Good Old fashioned Chicken Dressing
1 pan cornbread (make according to self-rising cornmeal package. Use buttermilk if possible)
1 chopped onion
3-4 Tbsp Sage
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
2 boxes of Chicken Broth (the swanson boxes.. not a case)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Make your cornbread in advance and let cool (if you don't your hands will suffer!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook chicken thoroughly in chicken broth in a large pot/stockpot. Remove chicken and shred it! (usually your fingers do the best job so it's a good idea to let the chicken cool). Add onion to the broth and let that cook for about 10 mins over medium heat. Remove stockpot from heat. Crumble your cornbread into the stockpot and make sure everything is crumbled finely (use your hands--works best). Re-add Chicken and mix thoroughly. Add Salt & Pepper and Sage to taste.
Pour mixture into LARGE casserole and bake 30 mins to an hour (watch the mixture after 30 mins. You only want to bake it long enough for the juices to evaporate a little bit).
The dressing shouldn't be watery.. or really dry. It should be moist and delicious!
Serve with cranberry sauce of your choice. <3
