Old-Fashioned Tomato Gravy Recipe

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. -Laurie Fisher, Greeley, Colorado
