How to Make MREs Better...

Here's the "history" of the MRE over at FAS. And MRE Menus has a comprehensive list of the menus that have changed over the years.

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! get...crappy pizza.

So who's got some killer recipes for MREs? Let's hear 'em.
