My first impression (don't take it to the bank) is that it might be a piece of stream-worn oyster shell. If it is shell material, the coloration makes a good case for its being fossil.

Mr. Ed I would not suggest putting it on a biscuit, it maybe hard to chew

Nice to have fossils right at home. I don't see anything that looks like a fossil in that rock except maybe the color and general appearance. Nothing specific. You are right ..it would make a toothbreaker of a sandwich. I once saw at a rock show.. a whole table set with rocks. The plates, knives, forks, spoons, potatoes, carrots, bacon, eggs, celery, beets, and pots and pans and more were all polished rock.
Sounds like it won't be long before you have more to post. Good luck with id on that one.
