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.
