Gluten Free Cheddar Baked Hominy

created by Carrie Forbes of

free of gluten and soy


1 1/2 cups milk

2 Tbsp. corn starch

1 1/2 Tbsp. butter

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 (29 oz.) can white or yellow hominy, drained

1 egg, beaten

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. freshly ground pepper

1-2 tsp. garlic granules (my favorite is SPIKE)

1/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl whisk milk and cornstarch together thoroughly. Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan and heat until sizzling. Add milk and cornstarch mixture.

STIR constantly until thick. (If you do not stir, cornstarch will stick to bottom of pan and burn!) When thickened, add shredded cheese. Stir until thoroughly incorporated with milk mixture. Add seasonings and correct to taste. Take off stove and let cool slightly. Add drained hominy and mix thoroughly. Add beaten egg and mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased 2 qt. casserole dish and sprinkle GF breadcrumbs on top. Bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes until set and is bubbling around the edges.
