Red Eye Gravy

Comments: My mother has made red-eye gravy as long as I can remember, but she never used coffee in the drippings. She added water to the drippings in a very hot cast iron skillet.

1/3 cup strong black coffee
Pork drippings

After cooking the breakfast meat (bacon, ham or sausage), remove it from the iron skillet and put aside.

To the drippings, pour 1/3 cup of strong coffee and stir while on the fire.
Pour over hot grits or sop up with hot biscuits.
Serves: 6
