Tomato Gravy And Biscuits

Tomato Gravy And Biscuits

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 16-ounce can of diced tomatos
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • buttermilk bisquits
Fry bacon until very crisp. Remove and drain. Crumble bacon into small pieces.

Add flour to bacon grease and cook about 1 min. to create a roux. Add tomatoes, milk, bacon, salt and pepper.

Serve warm over biscuits.

This is best if the biscuits are small and somewhat crisp instead of fluffy.

If you don't have biscuits, this gravy is excellent just on toast (like S.O.S).

For a different texture and flavor... which I seem to prefer this one... I use white cornmeal instead of flour... actually learned about this gravy from my father in law who lives in Alabama... its fantastic!

Just had this Gravy for the first time and had to find a recipe. Thanks for providing. By the way we found it to be so good that the left over we ate with a spoon.

We just had this for Saturday morning brunch - was an excellent twist on biscuits & gravy (which I always make from bacon drippings anyway...just like my grandma & aunties did). I used a couple of diced fresh tomatoes since I didn't have a can, and I used fat free half & half for the milk...worked great!

Wow - Texasmemaw...chocolate gravy! An auntie would make that for me & my cousins when we stayed with her in summer...all I remember was that she used a box of chocolate pudding mix to start, and we had it over biscuits. I may have to try & work that one out...I'll post it if I get it :)

My Mother made this when I was growing up as well. My daughter woke me up this morning wanting to know how to make it. My kids are all grown now and are always wanting me to make it for them, not just breakfast, anytime of the day. My Mother musta been really poor.(ha Ha,she used tomato sauce, puree or paste and used water instead of milk and she didn't crumble up the bacon in it. Speaking of gravy has anyone ever had chocolate gravy? My great aunt use to make it and it was SOOO good but I have no clue how she made it. Does anyone know?

I'll be 36 next Tuesday and my mother made this very recipe for us kids all the time... and even though I make it for my husband now, when I go back home to Mom's for a visit I will ask her to make it for me... there's nothing like Mom's cooking.

Why Cecil... my mother made this recipe, tomato gravy, even as I was a child... and now I am 77 and I fed this to my family... it was a standard meal when my children were growing up... however we ate it over toast when we were broke... over grits when richer... Ha Ha... I just asked my sister to make some and she said yes.
