Redeye gravy turns this basic fried ham breakfast into a gourmet Southern affair
Growing up, we would always road-trip it to Georgia to see my grandmother. Our first morning there, she would get up super early to start breakfast. There were all the usuals — eggs, bacon and cornbread. But sometimes she would surprise us by making country ham and redeye gravy.
If you have never had redeye gravy before, you should know that it's thin. It's not the typical thick, Thanksgiving-style gravy. Nope. This gravy is made with coffee and is perfect when paired with salty country fried ham and a slice of buttered bread. It's also fantastic served on top of grits.
