"Lewis and Clark" Hominy

A couple of years ago, we did a unit study of the Lewis and Clark Expedition with the boys in our homeschool. We checked out a book from the library that had recipes of the types of foods eaten on this expedition to explore a great expanse of the uncharted western area that was to become part of the United States. This recipe is one we added to our family favorites!

Lewis and Clark Hominy
Hominy (I use canned, drained)
Bacon, chopped
Onion, chopped
Cayenne pepper (ground red pepper)

Fry bacon crisp in a heavy skillet. Remove from skillet.
Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.
Add chopped onion and saute until soft.
Add the drained hominy, and the cooked bacon. Cook until hominy is heated through.
Sprinkle with cayenne pepper.
