Famous Red-Eye Gravy Recipe
Nothing can be simpler than making a red-eye gravy sauce. You just need two ingredients - strong black coffee and country ham!
  • Ham - The quality of ham dramatically affects the taste of the gravy. Therefore, it’s best to use high-quality ham.
  • Coffee - As for the coffee, it depends on your preference. Go for a nice, strong coffee if you want that caffeine kick. Otherwise, you can choose a medium roast one for subtle coffee flavor.
  1. It's quite simple to whip up this tasty gravy!
  2. First off, grab a skillet and fry a slice of country ham over medium heat. Wait for the ham to turn brown (but don't burn it!). You should be able to see beautiful brown crisps on the sides.
  3. Remove the ham from the skillet, leaving the ham drippings on the pan. Add the ½ cup of black coffee to the ham drippings.
  4. Deglaze by scraping the sides of the pan to get those crusty ham grits.
  5. Serve over the ham, and devour!
