How to make it

  • Heat oil in frying pan and sprinkle sugar lightly on both sides of ham.
  • Fry ham until lightly browned. Remove, set aside
  • Add water and coffee to pan dripppings and simmer about 2 minutes.
  • Spoon over ham or biscuits.
  • Note: Cured country ham slices are now available in many grocery stores. This is salty, and a taste treat. However, regular ham slices can be used. Do not trim fat.

    That's almost the same as we eat in Kentucky, but we eat it with beaten biscuits.

    Handle the biscuit dough carefully. If you over knead, it will become tough. You are over deveolping the gluten. Use a delicate hand. Biscuits aren't bread doughs they need a soft,soft touch.

    " It was excellent "

    Heavens yes, don't trim the fat. The fat makes the dish "red eye." My biscuits aren't ever quite cat-head quality but I'm going to keep trying. I'd like to blame the Florida humidity but I think it is my technique. The far flung family in the West Virgina Hills used to send my mom a beautiful country ham each Christmas and we would eat slivers just to savor it as long as we could. Breakfast ham was a special treat and momma's biscuits were the best. How I miss her cooking.
