Ingredients:4 strips of bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
1 or 2 cans of tomatoes
2 Tbsp corn starch
Preparation:Brown bacon and onions, add tomatoes, simmer for 30 min.
Add corn starch as thickener. Simmer until thick.
Notes:Just finished the last of the rice and tomato gravy from New Year's Day dinner. A tradition in Kevin's family is a southern style dinner on New Year's Day including black eyed peas for good luck.

The menu:
Coked Ham
Black eyed peas
Collard greens
Rice and tomato gravy

My favorite was the tomato gravy.

I'm sure you can tweak it many different ways. I saw celery and ground pepper in the gravy I finished. I've also seen a recipe with green pepper.

Pouring a can of Coke over a ham before cooking it in the oven makes the ham real juicy. Put slices on the top of the ham before pouring the Coke so it gets into the meat.
