Hominy Casserole – Reprise

I posted this recipe November 24, 2009, and it remains my favorite casserole.  Recently, the search word “hominy” has been trending high for this blog; so here’s the world’s greatest casserole just in time for the 2010 holiday season. Hat tip to my lovely wife Katy for coming up with it.

Thanksgiving week always begs the question:  Turkey or Sides?  I am a sides man.  You can get about a million casserole variations at this time of the year: green bean, broccoli, squash, sweet potato, etc., etc., but a few weeks ago Katy made a Hominy Casserole that, I guarantee, will be the most popular side at your holiday feast.  Some of you non-southerners may not know what hominy is.  Suffice to say it is a corn product, with a long heritage.  It’s where grits comes from.  Try this, and you won’t be able to go back to the standard casserole fare.

Katy's Hominy Casserole

    OK, so my mouth is watering now and it’s still 3 days till turkey day!

  • Kristal, go find some hominy and make it. This is the only recipe I have ever put on my blog, so that should tell you something.

    Thanks Joe and Katy. I will be making this for my side for Thanksgiving. I’ll let you know it turns out!

  • Becky, definitely a welcome change from that green bean and soup mix casserole folks usually have.
