“This is nice "scratch" casserole, inspired by the great James Beard, and slightly modified by yours truly, which can be either offered as a side dish with supper or, served by itself for brunch. It also makes a nice covered dish to take to family reunions, etc. I especially like it because it incorporates no "can of soup" and, it's a particularly good way to get the kids to eat hominy. It also fits the "something different" bill!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a tall-sided casserole dish with cooking spray. Layer in 1/3 of the hominy and then 1/3 of the corn. (NOTE: you can use canned corn -- just drain it but don't rinse it). Sprinkle on all the pepper and salt and then 4 tablespoons of the green chilies. Next, add 4 tablespoons of the sour creme and 1/2 of the shredded cheese. Finally, Dot this layer with 3 tablespoons of the butter.
  2. Make a second layer with 1/3 of the hominy, 1/3 of the corn, 4 tablespoons of the chilies, 4 tablespoons of sour creme and 3 tablespoons of the butter, (but no cheese or seasonings).
  3. Make a final layer of remaining hominy, corn, chilies, sour creme, cheese, and dotting the cheese on top with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Garnish the top by sprinkling on the chervil.
  4. Bake the casserole, uncovered, in a pre-heated 350-degree F. oven for 40 minutes. Allow it to stand for just a few minutes prior to serving.
