Disasters can strike suddenly, anytime and anywhere. While each event is unique and requires its own special response, the core of The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) program is targeted to meet the most basic needs such as food and shelter.
In the midst of almost every disaster you can spot a Salvation Army “canteen” (a “kitchen on wheels”) which provides and serves up to 1,500 meals a day for disaster survivors, first responders, and emergency personnel.
As part of National Preparedness Month, we would like to share a few delicious recipes from The Salvation Army’s EDS Cookbook.
Nothing says comfort more than a hardy breakfast. In the aftermath of a disaster, the relief of a hot familiar meal can help give the energy and comfort needed to get back on your feet. It’s hard to go wrong with eggs and cheese served between a warm biscuit!
1 TBSP milk
1 TBSP chopped green pepper
10 American cheese slices
10-oz can buttermilk flakey biscuits
1/8 tsp pepper if desired
Heat oven to 400°. Prepare biscuits according to package directions. In medium bowl, combine egg, milk, green pepper and pepper; beat well. In large skillet, melt butter; stir in egg mixture. Cook until set but still moist, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cut cheese into 20 triangles. Place biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet. Split each biscuit in half crosswise. Spoon eggs onto bottom ½ of biscuit. Top with 2 cheese triangles; replace top ½ of biscuit. Bake at 400° for 2-3 min. Or until cheese is melted. Serve right away.
