Biscuits and Tomato Gravy

What? Tomato gravy?

Trust me. I'm an expert.

This southern breakfast staple has been my favorite for years and I have recently turned my yankee husband on to this delicacy.

What you need:
Bacon drippings
Flour (to make a roux)
1 large can of crushed tomatoes in their juice
1 can of water
black pepper

While your biscuits are baking (use your favorite recipe) fry your bacon in a skillet. Once bacon is cooked, remove and set aside.

Reserve a few tablespoons of the bacon drippings and brown about 2-3 tbsp of flour. Once the flour is cooked, add tomatoes and water. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Immediately serve of hot out of the oven biscuits. Enjoy!
