Southern Tomato Gravy

Southern Tomato Gravy

“Tomato Gravy has always been a breakfast staple in my family. I can’t count the number of times I remember hearing that pop as my mom would open a jar of my grandmother’s homemade canned tomatoes to make it. The tangy, savory topping is perfect for homemade biscuits, scrambled eggs, you name it!. I even love it poured over cheese grits – think shrimp and grits, too.” - Stacey

Sausage Gravy

“The gravy is super easy and tasty too. This was a new way for us to cook sausage gravy and we were curious how it would turn out. Turns out leaving everything in the pan together works perfectly and saves time. The gravy is creamy and full of delicious sausage pieces.” - Kitchen Crew

"As Close to KFC as I Can Get It" Chicken Gravy

"As Close to KFC as I Can Get It" Chicken Gravy

“I made this on a dare. My husband, after trying my chicken, dared me to make something close to his favorite mashed potatoes and gravy -- which also happens to be from KFC. I took him up on that dare, and this is what I came up with. I have seen many recipes that use beef bouillon or beef gravy as a base, and I wanted something that tasted more like poultry. It's not an exact replica, but it's a yummy result.” - Kami
Hamburger SOS

Hamburger SOS

“This easy-to-make dish comes from Depression cooking, where a little meat could be stretched to feed & fill up a lot of people, and from the United States military, for the same reason. As a Navy Brat born to Depression Era parents, it's a given that this dish would be on our table!” - Fran
Redeye Gravy

Corned Beef Gravy

Corned Beef Gravy

“I loved this growing up (over homemade biscuits)....of course back then I'd never heard of packaged meats. We lived out on a farm, grew our own veggies, raised our own chicken, beef and pork. So it was made with leftover corn beef then........now though, I'm old and lazy, and I make it with the Carl Buddig corned beef (unless I happen to fix a corn beef brisket, then I use the leftovers).” - Straws
Mushroom and Onion Gravy

Mushroom and Onion Gravy

“This is so easy to make, but remember, it's only as flavorful as the broth! I always make my own stock to cut down on the sodium, but you get so much more flavor this way.” - Lynn

“This is exactly how I make mine - no canned soups, no gravy packets, just milk, flour, seasonings (salt, pepper and sometimes a little rubbed sage) and Kitchen Bouquet or Gravy Master to give it some color. Then we just dump it over mashed potatoes and chow down! I always serve this dish with buttered peas.” - Lynnie
Bacon Breakfast Gravy
