Loretta's Famous Egg Gravy
Why I Love This Recipe
Mom was great at making something from nothing and also jazzing up the ordinary to make it gourmet. One of her creations came from her days in boarding school. The food wasn’t always the best, but she fondly remembered a simple dish they served in the cafeteria called Egg Gravy. It’s basically creamed eggs on toast…doesn’t sound too appealing right. Well it’s turned into a family favorite loved by all. The condiments make it extra special, you’ll love it. My twist is adding some kale as a side. Everyone in our family loves this. It was a hands down for brunch or even a quick dinner.

This dish is complete like this, but Mom always had tons of condiments so everyone could customize their own. Here are some favorite topping ideas, but of course use your imagination as well
