Sausage Gravy on Toast

Sausage Gravy on Toast by Olives-n-Okra

My dad was career Army, and like every respectable military household, we had in our culinary arsenal a recipe for SOS (same old s#@&) among other things.  We usually ate creamed beef on toast—browned ground beef simmered in a thick peppered gravy, or chipped beef—ultra salty dried beef chopped and simmered in a thick gravy, either for breakfast or dinner.  Over time, we abandoned the ground beef in favor of sausage, which gave SOS a new meaning and probably double the calories and fat.  Traditionally, the Army served SOS on toast, but in the south it is generally eaten with biscuits. That is if you’re a civilian.
