"The way the bitter coffee marries with the sweet, smoky fat is far from unpleasant, and infinitely better than simply pouring the pan drippings over your food."

chopped fatty ham scraps
4 (1/4 inch thick) slices
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
We liked this recipe very much...I used crushed red pepper...not too much...and make sure you add enough salt!!! Keep tasting until you get it right...it will be bitter if not enough salt!!! Thanks for sharing this!!!
Wasn't a bad gravy...think I was expecting something different. I've never made Red Eye Gravy before. It could be operator error:)
