For a classic, Southern-style breakfast, try this recipe for Country Ham and Red-Eye Gravy. This simple breakfast recipe takes cured country ham and complements it with a ham gravy recipe. The ham is soaked in milk overnight to remove some of its saltiness. In the morning, it is dried and then pan seared. The ham gravy is then made in the same pan with water, black coffee, and a bit of cornstarch for thickness. Serve cheese grits alongside this breakfast ham recipe for an authentic Southern meal. This is comfort food at its finest!
