My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Baked Hominy Casserole

Hominy is just one of those things I could go on and on about. I have been known to open a can of hominy, drain it and eat it with a little salt and pepper. That might be a little tricky to serve to your family however. Did you know that hominy was the first corn-based dish taught to the colonists by the native Algonquin Indians. Bet you couldn't have lived without knowing that.

This is excellent, almost like a corn pudding.

Baked Hominy Casserole
6 to 8 servings
print recipe

about 1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 green onions, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can whole yellow or white hominy, drained
1 (8-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 eggs, beaten until frothy
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; set aside. Melt butter in a heavy 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add green and red pepper and green onions. Cook until vegetables are slightly wilted (about 5 minutes). Set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, combine hominy, corn, sugar, salt, Tabasco sauce, black pepper, eggs, milk, cream and cornstarch mixture. Stir to blend. Add bell pepper mixture; stir well. Pour mixture into buttered baking dish and bake in preheated oven until custard is firm and a knife inserted in center comes out clean (about 1 hour). Serve hot.
