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.
Red-Eye Gravy Not sayin' it's healthy, not sayin' it ain't but prepared by experts there's nothing like it! Had my best red eye gravy in my mother's home and also at a small restaurant in Independence, Va years ago
