Just tell them you're exotic -- a favored breakfast of the locals in Hawaii is a bowl of rice covered with brown gravy, which they serve with a sauteed slice of Spam (that pink stuff in a can, not unwanted e-mail).

Gravy and sauces are great over rice.

I love beef stroganoff over rice instead of noodles.

I love rice & gravy with any braised meat.

But when it comes to Chicken Fried Steak, I want my mashed potatoes and cream (white) gravy. I also like some peas or green beans on the side to sorta mix in with the taters.

Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Chicken, Fried Pork Chops .... makes no difference ....

Pour off most of the grease (how much you leave depends on how much gravy you want to make), add some flour (about equal to the amount of grease you left in the pan, but a little more), make a white (very low heat) or light brown (medium low - medium heat) roux ... (you want to cook the roux for about 3 minutes - how dark it gets depends on how high you crank up the heat) add lots of cold milk slowly while stirring constantly (be careful - it can thicken up on you real quick if the heat is too high - add milk until it is how thick you want it - let it cook a bit and add more milk to thin it out) season with salt and pepper. Those are basically the instructions I got from my grandmother.

Gravy on rice is a "Southern" staple. A meal without rice and gravy would be like breakfast without grits!

Hey - ask Paula Deen if you don't believe me!!! Although she has gotten into "coastal" cooking since she moved to Savannah ... her roots are in Albany, GA.

Michael, did you see her making "grits pie"? Some things she takes a bit too far, even for a Southern girl.

NO! Thank goodness!!!

While I might agree with ... "If you didn't want grits - why did you order breakfast?" ... Paula has moved away from the food she was brought up on ... the cooking style in SW (Albany - circa 1950's) GA (where she grew up) is a bit different from the Savannah style she now cooks.

I love Paula - but sometimes ... I just have to wonder what the girl was thinking when she comes up with some of her crazy recipes!
