From what I understand, tomato gravy was an old standby in the days of depression when food was scarce. Some of these "necessities" turned out to be favorite foods. The first time that I ever ate this gravy was at my best friend's house. This is the way that her mother, Lucy Cutright, made tomato gravy.

How to Make Tomato Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt the bacon drippings. Stir in the flour and brown.

  3. Salt and pepper to taste. Add the pinch of sugar.
  4. Canned tomatoes will work, but it is not as good as with fresh tomatoes. Make sure that you chop the tomatoes into small pieces.
