Grandpa's Eggs and Poorman's Gravy
He LOVED to make breakfast and this was another meal he made us quite often. I just love it! Simple yes, but simple good too.
Now, my Gramps could lay down a mean spread when it was the holidays and breakfast was the only meal you really needed to eat. Because we would have steak and eggs, homemade biscuits w/poorman's gravy, bacon, sausage, homemade applebutter w/fresh baked bread that had been toasted, and a array of other goodies at the table. It was a breakfast fit for Kings & Queens and I remember them fondly and with great pride that I had such amazing grandparents who loved me so.
OK, ok....a little too sentimental and I am stopping now since I am tearing up a little.
Lovin' the old West Virginia ways of my Grandpa's Cookin'.

- hard boiled eggs (still hot)

Peel your eggs while still hot and slice them up or mash with a fork like my Grandpa Campbell did.
