I was looking for an oatmeal bread recipe in my original binder copy of My I Have a Copy of That Recipe, when I stumbled on this recipe for Hominy Casserole.
It was created by Ma’am’s second mother, Aunt Geneva Smith. Ma’am lived with Aunt Geneva and Uncle Ellis while she was at college in Texas and her parents were still in Alaska. Since I am on a family research kick lately I thought it was high time I made it. And, I had the ingredients on hand.
Could it be any simpler?
You can vary the amount and types of seasonings based on the tastes of the eaters and/or what will accompany it. I went with about a 1/4 teaspoon each of cumin and garlic. You can use Monterey Jack in place of all or part of the Cheddar, like I did.
If you opt for method two (dump it all in the dish and bake) the onions will still have plenty of bite to them. If you want them milder, precooking is the way to go and only takes a few extra minutes.
This can easily be doubled and taken to a potluck or even served along side a holiday meal.
I never did find the recipe for Oatmeal Bread. If anyone in my family happens to have it in their original copy of the cookbook, or anyone else has a pre 1980’s Joy of Cooking cookbook, can you send me the recipe? It is the BEST! I will never understand why the editors removed it in my edition.
