Default Redeye gravy and biscuits for breakfast

While checking some of my favorite sites, I seen some post about what people were cooking for breakfast and got an idea. I hadn't had some good ole redeye and sausage gray since I left the fire station 2 yrs ago. I didn't have any Jimmy Dean Maple sausage to use, so I adapted and used some of my fresh deer/pork sausage. I prefer a little Steen's motor oil syrup, but didn't have of that either, so I found some "Moon Shine" syrup", dunno, but it was good.

Start off with a light roux, 50/50 oil and flour, about 1/4 cup each. Then add a chopped onion and saute' till clear. Add one can of diced tomatoes and browned sausage. Season to taste, I like any type cajun seasoning and about 2 tbls of sugar and about 1/2 cup water. Simmer for about 20 min. Serve over and busted homemade cat head biscuit.

I like to add a little syrup to mine to add a little syrup flavor to mine. The roux is what makes the gravy. I use diced tomotoes, you may need to add about 1/2 cup of water to thin the gravy.

I have gone back and edited the recipe, thanks for bringing that up.

1/4 cup of each, you can use a little more though, I guess at most of my recipes.

It looks tasty.

I know that the same kinds of foods are called all kinds of different names according to location. I thought that redeye gravy had coffee in it. When made with a light flour roux like in this recipe with the tomatoes, my mother always called it tomato gravy. Without tomatoes we called it brown gravy or I think some people might call it sawmill gravy with the sausage.

I am just curious what other people call redeye gravy. No matter what is looks great. Anytime you start out dripping and flour, you are off to a good start.

I'm curious too. I never had a gravy with coffee in it before. Redeye is what they always called this at the fire station.
