  • try this: from ...but I HAVE to ask.... what do you put it on?

    1/4 cup bacon drippings
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups water
    1/2 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
    salt and ground black pepper to taste

    Heat bacon drippings in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir the flour into the bacon drippings and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned. Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture while whisking. Whisk in the tomato paste. Cook the mixture until it begins to thicken. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thick, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • It depends...reciepes can differ...

    My tomato gravy is made with fat/lard/oil (take your pick), flour, a bit of milk, and canned tomato paste. Basically its just like making regular gravy, but you add less milk to make up for the tomato paste you are adding in....

  • In the South, you do make actual gravy with tomatoes...this is usually used on eggs for breakfast, or as a gravy for meatloaf or as a cheap substitute for spaghetti sauce or as a base for some goulashes...

  • My DF is from NY, and his "gravy" is my tomato sauce. It took forever for me to figure out what he meant, lol.
