There's a Game On? - Bacon Redeye Gravy on Cornmeal-Chive Biscuits
Big Bro called me today and I asked about Dad, as he was tired the last couple of days. He said "Dad went to church!" That's really good news, as at 92, Dad's not had the energy to go very often and recently got over a cold. I said "he must be feeling better". Bro said "No, Dad said he just wanted to make sure the 49's won".
If YOU have a football fan in the house and you want to get his attention away from the TV (or reloading bench, garage, etc.) try making this for breakfast or supper. The biscuits are tall and crisp on the edges, tender and flakey in the middle, with a savory undertone of sage and chives, perfect with the gravy.
Bacon Redeye Gravy on Cornmeal-Chive Biscuits
Redeye gravy is traditionally made with coffee and ham drippings and no flour. The HOTR version uses just a touch of flour to slightly thicken it and uses hickory smoked bacon drippings instead of ham with a tiny pinch of brown sugar and red pepper. It's always better with bacon. . right?
Go ahead, put down the remote and have a serving. Sorry Barkley. I know it's Super Bowl Sunday, but you'll have to stick with your dog chow and doggie snacks, no people food. We don't want you turning into a Wide Retriever.
