  14. Place 1 slice of bread on plate; smother in gravy. Add slices of crispy fried tomatoes & crispy bacon. I do not cover bacon & tomatoes with gravy as I like the crunch but feel free to top with another slice of bread & smother with more gravy. I do sprinkle pepper flakes on mine but I did not add to recipe.
