Country Ham at The Silver Skillet


On the last weekend of my swing through the south, Ian and I stopped at The Silver Skillet in Atlanta, where we were determined to try an authentic Country Ham. This ham is distinguished from a normal ham by its high sodium content. It’s so salty, in fact, that the when I ordered the waitress said, “You know that’s real salty, babe.” What makes a ridiculously salty ham even better? A bowl of red-eye gravy for dipping… that’s even saltier than the ham itself.

If you like a little meat with your salt, it’s highly recommended. And yes, after all that, Ian ordered bacon too…
