    My mother made tomato gravy, which was served over a bed of rice and cooked blackeyed peas. VERY tasty!

    Wonderful recipe! I used bacon drippings instead of oil and ended up adding a little more liquid. I think the liquid varies depending on whether you use fresh or canned tomatoes as well as personal preference to the thickness of the gravy. I doubled the recipe and also added 1/2 cup tomato juice just to make it tomato-ier. It was fine without though. We served it over French Canadian Tourtiere and it made the dish. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this to top off some liver smothered with onions and it was delicious! I even dipped my mashed potatoes in the gravy. Really yummy!
