20 years in the Army so I ate a lot of SOS and loved it. Now that I retired I still eat a lot of it. Try adding a little onion, bell pepper, and garlic powder, pour it over biscuits, WOW!

Hi sweetfuzz 7594776 - For each 1/4 cup of powdered milk in a recipe, add 1/2 cup evaporated milk mixed with 1/2 cup water and reduce 1 cup water out of the recipe. So for this particular recipe, you will need to use 1.5 cups of evaporated milk and 1.5 cups water, reducing the water out of the recipe. Hope this helps! -Editors of RecipeLion

How much evaporated milk can be used to substitute for powdered milk and water?

A great quick easy meal, we add a pattie of sausage and use skim milk, make drop bisquites, makes a full meal

I was a cook in the U.S. Army back in 1961-1964 and made SOS every morning for Breakfast Cow......we always used evaporated milk instead of powdered milk.....all the troops loved SOS over toast....one thing it stuck to your ribs.....most of the guys would add 3 eggs and 3 strips of bacon along side of it to make a good breakfast....
