I was the kind of soldier that would do anything to improve my MRE - trade, steal (from Class I, not fellow soldiers), or otherwise doctor with ingredients from the local economy or from care packages. I'm pretty sure that I threatened to kill a guy with a pork pattie one time after a long deployment.
Anyway, I used to make pizza with the beef pattie, get the cheese from another MRE, ketchup, and a cracker and, viola!...you get...crappy pizza.
So who's got some killer recipes for MREs? Let's hear 'em.
