I knew there would be some folklore surrounding it. That's a good story about adding sawdust to the gravy.

Creamed chipped beef on toast was served often by military messes. The soldiers gave it the name "sh*t on a shingle" or SOS, the shingle is the toast.

There's a local diner that serves country fried steak with sawmill gravy so you get a double dose of meat - sausage and steak!

Ha! I never thought of making sausage gravy with my country(chicken) fried steak. What a decadent touch.

I didn't think about tasso! I just did a batch, well smoked it, a couple weeks ago. It had to cure for a week before then. I can't just do the sausage, flour, cream/milk/half & half and black pepper thing. I have to at the least get some onions in there. Seems Like I'm always "tweeking" things or I'll just come off the top of my head with an idea. Came up with some really nice dinners that way.
