Hominy & Cheese


Yesterday, we were working on some new menu ideas and canned hominy was suggested as a side dish. We’re putting fried chicken on the menu next week and wanted a starch we hadn’t used lately.
We loosely followed a whipped potatoes model. Canned hominy was steamed in a perf pan for around 15 minutes. It was put in the mixer with some butter, warm milk, shredded muenster cheese, kosher salt and Frank’s Red Hot. Mix on med/high with the whip attachment until mostly creamy, but with a few lumps left.
This is a very easy, delicious side dish. It’s a comforting dish, that won’t break the bank. Finish with fried chicken and pickled tomatillos. Done.

    1. I had a surplus on hand. To be honest, it was delicious, so why not? I think a lot of people get hung up on canned food, and not wanting to use it. There are times when it matters and times when it doesn’t.

  1. I’ve used both- just wondered if there was a particular reason you chose canned. Dried is actually more convenient for me since I can get it shipped to my home. Canned isn’t sold close by and toting unnecessary liquid home on the subway is something I try to avoid when possible 😉

  2. Wow, fantastic blog format! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for?
    you made running a blog glance easy. The entire look of your website is fantastic, as neatly as
    the content material!
