I thought Sunday gravy was the tomato sauce that cooked all day (traditionally started Sunday morning and left to simmer while everyone went to church) with sausage and meatballs in it. Italians in New Jersey call it that.
+1!It's the same in most of the United States. Italian Americans in the northeast call it Sunday gravy, sometimes gravy for short.
That's what my Italian New Jersey mom and aunts did every Sunday. Gravy bread was a treat while waiting for dinner to be served. Put some bread on a plate and top with gravy and grated cheese.
