However, I soon found another way to get gravy (without the dry biscuits) - namely, chicken fried steak. I found that chicken fried steak breakfast combinations usually got served up with eggs, some sort of potatoes and toast, and (usually) plenty of country gravy. Add in some coffee and I was set!
To this day, chicken fried steak and eggs remains one of my favorite things to have when I go out to eat breakfast. I use it as a barometer when I try out a new breakfast place - if the chicken fried steak is good, the rest of the menu is probably good as well and I'll be back for more. My favorite all-time chicken fried steak and eggs can be gotten from The Country Way on Mowry in Fremont, CA. They only have the homemade to-die-for white country gravy on weekends, and you had better go early, because when they run out that's it!
Oh yes, and before you even have a chance to ask, yes I also am a huge fan of that other breakfast combination with the word chicken in it - namely, chicken and waffles. But that's fodder for another blog entry.
Now I'm hungry.
