Southern Tomato Gravy

Tomato Gravy is such a Southern dish served over biscuits for breakfast, rice for supper or mashed potatoes.  I like it with pasta and I use leftover gravy in hamburger dishes. A great way to use up all those tomatoes from the garden.  You might also like our recipe for buttermilk biscuits and country gravy.

Southern Tomato Gravy

2 cups fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped (can use a 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes)

5 tablespoons bacon drippings

5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups water (some prefer to use milk instead of water)

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Cut up tomatoes in bowl. Add the salt, pepper, sugar and garlic powder and mix with a spoon.  Put bacon drippings in a hot skillet on stove top.  Add flour and make a roux or cook until thick.  Pour in tomatoes and water and cook until the consistency of gravy.  Serve over biscuits.  ENJOY!
