Appalachian Gravy Bread

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bone Man

This is a classic Appalachian meal. Not especially healthy but cheap, uses up leftovers, and very satisfying! When I was growing up, we would (individually) eat gravy bread several times a week -- as a result, we never had any leftover gravy to feed to the dogs. It was also the reason that we never had any bread heels that went to waste. If you've never tried this, then I'd say that you're in for a special treat, especially if you're a "meat and potatoes" type of person. Enjoy! big pat.

Talk about stick to your ribs !!! What a special treat on a cold day. At the end of any not so great day this will fix everything !! I store my gravy flat in a zip lock bag with the air squished out - then once it is frozen flat, it is easy to take out and cut off just the amount you need and pop the rest back in the freezer.
