    also just saw that recipe said canned biscuits:: are they kidding??? seriously, grease gravy would even be hard to eat with canned biscuit, the consistency isn't right. Got to make hand made biscuits.. VERY SIMPLE!!

    i was raised on this gravy, we called grease gravy.. to this day, when some of us grown children fix this, we all arrive to eat it with "cathead" biscuits. I still crave it! I have only found one other person outside of my family that knows what I am talking about,, its one of those things that sounds gross, but will make you slap others away from the pan. Best eating ever!!

    It seems funny to me that people would be wary to try red eye gravy. Most of us drink coffee with breakfast and don't think a thing about it.

    Please let me know what you think. The ham you need is cured ham, sometimes it's not even refridgerated, and it's in a shrink tight package. Enjoy!!

    I've heard of red-eye gravy but didn't know it actually contained coffee. I'll try this next time I get a ham.
