United States Military Recipes
- Anzac Biscuits
— ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and these cookies are
so named because they were baked and shipped off to Australian and New Zealander
soldiers during World War I.
- Army Goulash (Gooey) — During World War II, this dish would have been made with one of three kinds of
canned beef: one lightly seasoned from the US or Argentina called "Canned Horse";
the British version known as "Bully Beef" or the unpleasant tasting French version
from Madagascar called "Monkey Meat."
- Salvation Army Donuts — This
is the recipe that Salvation Army workers would use during World War I and II
when making large amounts of the donuts for hungry troops. To call the recipe
"official" is something of a misnomer though, as the donuts have been made
differently by various Army groups throughout the years.
- S.O.S. (Chopped Beef on White Toast) — Upon joining the United States Marine Corps in the early 1940s, I was introduced

White Toast. Most of us called it S.O.S.
