Red-eye gravy is just drippings from whatever you've roasted, probably ham if you're making red-eye gravy, with some black coffee and sugar stirred in over a low flame. Use corn starch to thicken. Fat, caffeine and sugar sounds so good, but it's not for me.

Squid probably don't give enough fat for this recipe.

Um, as a matter of fact, I have tasted Vegemite -- sent away for it from one of those Aussie import catalogs. And I can safely say that, with the possible exception of kerosene, just about anything is better than that stuff. How do your fellow Antipodeans stand it? I guess all that :beer: must kill the taste. Or the tastebuds. :?
It's just that they're so incredibly TOUGH, particularly down here in the South. Y'know the sorta thing wrestling with crocs/moa's/messies (slot in your fav tough critter) all before a hearty brekky of speights and vegemite on galvo (toast being too namby pamby, you understand!).

No Lattes and Criossants down here!

OK, I'll bite (pardon the expression): what's galvo? Is that anything like Anzac biscuits?

And what about the googs? Don't tell me the Kiwi chooks have gone on strike!

Can't say I've tried any of the rest of it, but as a 3rd generation Texan, I'm certainly a big fan of grits. They are great in a cheesy grits casserole, but my favorite ('cause my dad used to make it for me when I was little), is eggs over easy, bacon, and grits. You crumble the bacon up, cut up the eggs, mix it all together, and eat it. Oh, throw a pat of butter on the grits before you mix, and don't forget to take your Zocor.

Mmm!

The year I lived in Texas, my girlfriend convinced me to try grits. Personally I just can't see the attraction, it's like eating dirt with margarine. Of course, hummus tastes a lot like dirt and I like that. Go figure.
