What Is Country-Fried Ham With Redeye Gravy

Why this recipe may not be the best thing for you, I grew up with it. My grandmother and mom world make us country fried ham with redeye gravy every Saturday morning. I now make it for my family on Saturday the same as they did. It is a really easy recipe to make and i'm sure you will love it.

If you have never tried t you really should it is the ultimate in Southern comfort foods, that unless you grew up in old southern home you probably never have heard of. I recommend severing it with grits or buttermilk biscuits.

It is told that this recipe started out on chuck wagons, to help wake up the cowboys before they left for a long day of work. Why I do not know how true this is I can say it turns out amazing made on a cast iron skillet on a camp fire., and it is a stick to your ribs breakfast that will keep you going well until lunch time.
