Ingredients

How to make it

  • In large cast iron skillet, heat bacon grease or shortening
  • Stir in flour and lower heat to med. low
  • Keep stirring to brown flour to a dark roux stage.
  • Be careful not to burn roux. This takes a little while so don't try to hurry it up.
  • When flour gets to the dark roux stage, slowly stir in tomatoes with liquid.
  • Add water a little at a time while stirring tomato gravy.
  • Season with salt and pepper and simmer on low for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Before serving, add butter and stir.
  • Serve over fresh baked homemade biscuits with a little extra butter on top! (canned biscuits don't work well with this dish!)

    Hell, I can omit everything and just use the bacon grease!
