The first time I tasted this dish, I couldn't eat enough. It's something my stepmother has prepared for a long time. Whenever I fix it, there are never any leftovers.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) white hominy, drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives, optional
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs


  1. In a skillet, saute onion and green pepper in 3 tablespoons butter until tender. Add flour, salt, mustard and cayenne; cook and stir until smooth and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese until melted.
  2. Remove from the heat; add hominy and olives if desired. Pour into a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Melt remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs; sprinkle over hominy mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden.
