Southern Style Hominy and Cheese

This thick and creamy southern treat is extremely popular in our house.  It takes a little time and attention, but when done right gives an amazing taste experience.  Definitely out of the comfort food genre, the finished dish has a consistency just a bit creamier than a home made mac and cheese.  Try this for something different.  It will be well received.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups golden hominy, drained (this is about one large can and one regular can)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbs grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk, warmed

Directions

  1. In a cast iron skillet, combine hominy with water, salt, cheese and butter
  2. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until cheese and butter have melted
  3. Turn broiler onto high and let oven preheat
  4. Meanwhile, gradually stir in the milk and cook
  5. Stir occasionally, until thick and bubbly (if it is too runny and you are in a huge hurry add some corn starch to thicken)
  6. Transfer skillet to broiler and cook for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned

Be very careful moving this to the table, and warn the kids not to touch the skillet.  They will love this dish!
