      I was looking for a version of red-eye gravy with less sugar than most and this one fit the bill. I added 1/4 cup of sliced scallions and 3/4 cup of mushrooms and it turned out great. I cut about 12 ounces from the center of an 19 ounce Costco ham slice (saving the rest for brunch this weekend).<br/>I was able to do the whole thing in one cast iron skillet (ah, one pan cooking, I love it) doing it like this:<br/>Heat grease, add flour and sugar in a cast iron skillet until dissolved and incorporated with ham grease. Saute scallions and mushrooms till softened slightly. Add water, coffee and bouillon cube (i used Beef Better Than Bouillon), stir until gravy is well blended. Push scallions and mushrooms to outside edges of pan. Add ham slices to center of skillet. Remove ham slices to warm oven when heated through and tent with foil. Add water, coffee and bullion cube, stir until gravy is well blended. Turn down heat and cook for 1 minute, add butter and cook for 1 minute longer. <br/>Since cast iron doesn't really conduct heat that well, it was 100° hotter in the center of the pan for browning the ham slice and the outer edge didn't burn the scallions and mushrooms.<br/>Thanks for posting this, we really enjoyed it.
