Red Eye Gravy
Prep/Cook Time: 10 min.
Updated: Jun. 27, 2023
This southern classic is more of a thin sauce than a traditional thick gravy. It's made with strong coffee and drippings from a slice of cooked country ham. Red eye gravy has intense flavor with salty and bitter notes that pair well with biscuits, grits and ham. If you prefer a more mellow flavor, add a dash of brown sugar. —Peggy Woodward, Shullsburg, Wisconsin
