Meet the Cook: My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. It's her very favorite breakfast. We - my husband, our two sons (15 and 12) and I - also enjoy it for a light supper. Especially on a cold day, it's great with warm peach cobbler or bread pudding.

P.J. Prusia of Raymore, Missouri appreciates the make-ahead convenience of this breakfast dish shared by a friend many years ago. "I've served this to overnight guests, and they never fail to ask for the recipe."
Keep these ingredients on hand to when you want to make gravy for recipes that don't make pan drippings. This gravy is excellent served with meat loaf, Salisbury steak, hamburgers or even leftover roast beef or pork.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
When there's no time to make gravy, or you run out of gravy to serve with leftovers, try this lifesaver that makes the most of prepared gravy. You can replace the thyme with poultry seasoning when using chicken or turkey gravy.
