NotesAs the legend goes, Andrew Jackson once asked his whiskey-drinking cook to "bring some ham and gravy as red as your eyes." And that's how the pan gravy from country ham was named. How true that story is I don't know, but what is 100% true about Ham with Red Eye Gravy that it is a breakfast staple in all Southern States. This recipe we found in America a Regional Cookbook by Mary Brandt Kerr.
