This Southern breakfast uses red eye gravy, which is made with black coffee in it for flavor. (Fun fact: if you didn’t know, a Red Eye is a cup of coffee with a shot of espresso in it!). There are many theories as to why it was called a “red eye” to begin with, but there’s no debate that the Red Eye Gravy and Country Ham breakfast is easy, delicious, and quintessentially Southern. Make sure to get Country ham for this recipe for best results.
