Southern women pride themselves on knowing how to make the best sweet tea and a killer sausage gravy. It’s just one of those things that we pass down, generation to generation, mother to daughter. Most of my favorite memories are of my mother’s kitchen, the amazing smell coming from whatever was cooking on the stove while we played on the floor. This dish is a classic southern recipe so delicious you’ll devour it and run back for seconds.
