"Can you say pure Southern comfort? This gravy is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner over biscuits or toast, alongside grits, over Mac 'n Cheese, Salmon Cakes, Catfish Patties, or any other way you can think of. NOTE: You can use leftover bacon or sausage drippings to make the roux. It makes the best tomato gravy, especially when crispy bits of meat find their way into the mix. You can also add in 1 cup diced onions, 1 clove crushed garlic, and red pepper flakes, to taste, to spice it up."
