Notes

  • Tomato gravy tastes similar to a cream-based tomato soup recipe.
  • Heavy cream or half and half can be used for the cream ingredient.
  • Whole milk works best for a thicker southern tomato gravy recipe.
  • Amish Tomato Gravy can be served over toast points, bread, crackers, rice, fried potatoes, etc.
  • Substitute a can of diced tomatoes with the juices or 5-6 fresh tomatoes for tomato juice if desired.
  • Sugar is an optional ingredient, though highly recommended.
