Tomato Gravy and Bisquits

Janice Ross


I love tomato gravy! This is one of those childhood southern memories that has been passed down through generations of good cooks. I loved in the mornings having tomato gravy, fried bacon, bisquits from scratch, and natuarally grits! It's even good on grits!!! My sister always tells me that I make bisquits just like mama and I do because she taught me a secret to it. I need to make this for my sister one morning soon before we go galvanting to antique shops.

How to Make Tomato Gravy and Bisquits


  1. Fry bacon crispy. Set aside. Sprinkle flour in bacon drippings. Add tomatoes and a little water, cook on low-med heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer until ready to serve. Depending on how thick you want your gravy; you may want to add a little more water
  2. Serve on homemade bisquits or you can dip (sop as we say in the South) the bisquit. I like to serve grits with this too.
  3. Thank you JAP friends I forgot to tell you to use the bacon as a side!!
