serving this on pasta or rice is fine but it was designed to be served on a slice of bread, plain or toasted. SOS stands for "sh*t on a shingle" or in more polite terms "same old stuff" My WW2 vet father knew it as S on a shingle and ate it both on base in the US and in the field kitchens in the rear areas behind the front lines. I also knew it as S on a shingle and it was always served on bread. Using ground beef is a variation because many people either don't know what chipped beef is or can't find it anymore. The original name for SOS was creamed chipped beef on toast. If you can't find chipped beef you can use chopped up deli-style roast beef slices or pastrami slices. The cook in our messhall never put onions or garlic in his SOS but being a good Louisiana boy he added his favorite hot sauce which turned the SOS a light pink. Very tasty and he took a lot of good natured ribbing about the color but everyone always went back for seconds. Including me. My dad would have liked it also.
