• Cheesy Hominy And Onions Recipe

    CHEESY HOMINY AND ONIONSIf the first word out of your mouth after the word hominy is “Yuk!” you’re going to have to give me a chance here because I used to be just like you. However, I’ve changed my mind, and this is one of the things I make that guarantees me there will be no leftovers.

    We lost a member of our congregation this week, and I had to prepare a dish for the family luncheon. Besides the fact that I knew this hominy was a favorite with the group, there’s just something about its richness that makes it a comfort food as well.

    You will have to adjust your amounts, but I did the following:

    Ingredients

    1 Onion, very large or 2 smaller ones
    1/4-1/2 Stick Butter
    1/2 pod garlic (You can use powder.)
    3 Cans Hominy, drained well  (I used 2 white and 1 yellow, but sometimes I use all yellow.)
    Velveeta (I used about 1/4 of a large box.)

    Melt butter over medium heat.

    While butter melts, chop garlic into tiny pieces. You can use garlic powder, but I use fresh for the health benefits.

    GRILLED ONIONS

    Add ringed onions and cook until tender. About 2-3 minutes before the onions are done, stir in the chopped garlic.

    HOMINY AND ONIONS

    Pour drained hominy over onions and stir well. Chunk Velteeta slices into the mixture and put back on the stove on very low heat, stiring often.

    CHEESY HOMINY AND ONIONS

    Serve as soon as cheese is completely melted. I guarantee you that this dish oozes with creamy goodness.
