Red Eye Gravy

I didn’t realize until I was older what the red eye meant. My dad always made this (not my mom) I guess because he learned how to make it at the fire station. It was a special breakfast when we had this salty gravy to put over our grits.

Country ham, enough slices for servings needed

1/2 cup strong black coffee per serving

Brown ham over medium heat in a cast iron skillet to develop fond on the pan. Remove ham, add coffee and cook until thickend. Serve over grits or biscuits.
