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

Enjoy, and have a Happy and Safe  Holiday Season!   And leave a comment if you like the recipe.

Cooking with Joe – a couple of my favorite kitchen tools

George ForemanI have owned a few George  Foreman Grills; they come in all shapes and sizes.  They are good for quick grilling lots of things:  burgers, grilled cheese, grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches, sliced eggplant and other veggies, T-bone steaks, onions, and the list goes on and on.  When you don’t want to fire up the gas or charcoal grill the George Foreman is a great stand-in.  If you have space for another kitchen appliance, forget that toaster oven and check out a George F.  One caveat.  The grills with non-removable cooking surfaces are hard to clean.  Be sure to get the removable surfaces.

If you are a bacon lover, but hate the mess; if you are a bacon lover and need your bacon fix RIGHT NOW, you need a microwave bacon cooker.

I have some more cooking ideas for you coming up soon.
