RED-EYED GRAVY AND HAM|
Sliced country ham
6 tablespoons brewed black coffee
Salt and pepper
Fry ham in skillet with enough oil to prevent sticking. When ham is cooked to desired browning, place on paper towels to drain. Remove skillet from cook top and quickly pour off excess grease. Blend coffee (morning coffee is fine) and a little water in a small bowl.
Place the frying pan back on the cook top at low to medium heat, then pour the coffee mixture back into the frying pan. Gravy will froth to a boil; keep stirring for 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving. Serve gravy and ham with biscuits.
