Country Ham with Redeye Gravy

"For true redeye gravy," Roevis says, "you must use caffeinated coffee for the pick-me-up quality."


6 servings

Recipe from

Southern Living


2 cups hot strong brewed coffee
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 (12-ounce) slices boneless country ham


Stir together coffee and sugar; let mixture cool.

Cook ham in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove ham, and keep warm, reserving drippings in skillet.

Add coffee mixture to skillet, stirring to loosen particles from bottom; bring to a boil. Boil, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half (about 15 minutes). Serve immediately with ham.
