I dare you guys to come up with more good gravy-recipe's!!
My secret for a good gravy is using cheap margarine and heaps of herbs and some heinz hickory-smoke ketchup.
Other possible ingredients:
Port, Beer, Honey(see recipe)
COUNTRY HAM WITH RED-EYE GRAVY
1/4-inch-thick center cut of country ham
4 tablespoons black coffee
2 teaspoon of honey
This is a traditional way of serving country ham in many parts of the South. It's ususally served for breakfast with grits and hot biscuits. Water may be used in place of the coffee, but it won't have that unique flavor.
1) Trim off the skin from the slice of ham. Fry the ham quickly in an ungreased hot skillet for a couple of minutes on each side. Remove the ham from the pan and set aside.
2) To the hot fat remaining, add the black coffee and honey. Stir to dissolve the honey, cover, and simmer for a couple of minutes.
3) Pour the gravy over the ham slices and serve.
