Red Eye Gravy


Red eye gravy is one of those easy, old-fashioned recipes deep rooted in Southern tradition. Sometimes called “poor man’s gravy,” it’s made with the drippings from country ham and spiked with strong black coffee. Whether ladled over a slab of salty country ham or soaked up with a buttermilk biscuit, this simple gravy is a yummy way to relive the folklore from which it originated.



In a cast iron skillet add ham pieces and warm over low heat, stirring when the ham starts to juice. Once warm, pour in the coffee and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and you’re done!1 lb Loveless Country Ham
