So, of course I had to make him a dish that would let the delightful hominy flavor seep through, yet still be appealing. What do men like more than, well, a lot of things? Bacon!
The old standby: Bacon and Onions sauteed with hominy.
Dice a little less than 1/4 cup onion, shallot, or green onion.
Dice around the same amount of bacon.
Fry that up until the bacon is the desired consistency you want.
I abhor crispy bacon, so, as you can see, I cook it to the nice, tender, juicy stage of doneness. But, to each their own.
Once your bacon and onions are all cooked up, add a dash of pepper and a can of drained and rinsed hominy. It's not super important to rinse the hominy, but soaking in lye? that seems like you should rinse it, just for good measure. Plus it washes a little of that sodium rich water they've been sitting in.
Cook 'till the hominy is warm and eat it up!
Moral of the Story: Anything is good with bacon on it. Even lye-soaked field corn.
