Original Red Eye Gravy is just country ham drippings and strong black coffee. I have had it many times made by my MomMoo (mom) like this poured hot over grits and fried eggs with a hot buttered biscuit to dip in it! YUMMMMM!!!! When I want the real deal this is how I still make it. But my kids think the bitter has to be calmed down so I go to my 79 year old Aunt Thelma's recipe.
Ham and red-eye gravy are a classic Southern staple that many have forgotten about. My version is "toned down" for those of you who are a little timid! | recipe from Chattavore.com
