Try this recipe, using golden hominy instead of white hominy. Over the years, I have learned that people who think they don't like hominy have no problem with eating golden hominy. Possibly, because the color is not so blah! I grew up thinking that if you like corn--you like hominy!

Not sure if I did something wrong but I followed to recipe and it turned out so bad. I ended up dumping the whole thing out. Very dissappointed!

This was quite good!! I used non fat plain yogurt rather than sourcream and fat-free cheddar. I added low-fat mozzarella, too! Oh, this was very tasty! I'll definately make it again... and again :)

I LOVE hominy! Only had 2 cans in the house, so used those 2 cans plus 1 can of the "summer crisp" corn. Brought it to work to share, since my hubby hates hominy (but not as much as he hates squash). Most people at work wouldn't touch it...(Never realized how many people have a "hominy phobia". LOL) But those who were fond of it loved it and asked for the recipe. Thank you for sharing.

I have been looking for this recipe for several years after I tried it at a church potluck. This recipe is awesome!!

Quite good. My mom complained that it was so fattening. She ate it, though! :)

A unique and delicious dish. I substituted nonfat palin yogurt for the sour cream and 50% reduced fat Irish white cheddar for the regular cheddar. It was fabulous so I can imagine how the full fat version tastes. This could be a real conversation piece at a pot luck..

I grew up eating something very similar to this - and loved it! Unfortunately, it was my Granmother who made it, and she never wrote anything down! Tried this, followed the recipe exactly - and it's very, very similar to hers. Thanks for posting it! Yum! And the whole family enjoyed it. It is a little on the heavy side - but this was never an "every day" item in our house anyway...
