How many recipes have you seen for this? I saw one that had milk in the gravy, can you imagine. A true Southerner will tell you coffee has to be in the gravy, not decaffeinated coffee either, the real stuff, strong.
Pour some of the gravy over the ham slice on the plate and take one of those biscuits you just learned how to make and sop it up. If you are making this for breakfast you have to have fluffy scrambled eggs and sliced tomatoes. This honey, is comfort food.
