    Aww, this brings back memories of when I was in the US Army. We had a cook in Fulda Germany who could really make some good S.O.S. Thanks for submitting a great vintage recipe.

    Hamburger gravy, a favorite go to (the kids like it over noodles!). I loved it this way, hated when my Mom would use chipped beef!!!! and served it over toast. Funny, I like it now that way.
