Mess Deck

I recently acquired a cookbook published by the USS Semmes (DDG-18) in 1966.  I thought that this might be an opportunity to provide you with a sampling of recipes from the mess deck of a DDG.  Although the cookbook was not from the Towers, some of these sound very familiar!  This page is "under construction", additional  DDG recipies will be continually added.

Caution:  Most if not all of these recipies are for 25 servings, please keep this in mind if you try these on your own mess deck!

Cream of Potato Soup

Potato Omelet

Baking Powder Biscuits

Golden Potato Balls

Fried Chicken

Corn Fritters
