I love hominy, and I wanted to make a pie or quiche using it. Somehow the flavors of the bacon, cheese, and tomatoes crept in. Of course, everything is better with bacon, cheese, and tomatoes, right?

How to Make Baked Hominy Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray or brush a 9-inch pie plate with olive oil. Heat tortillas for 20-30 seconds in the microwave or a hot dry skillet to soften them. Place one tortilla in the plate, fitting it in like a piecrust. Spray or brush tortilla with olive oil, then sprinkle with half the grated cheese. Fit the second tortilla over the first. Set aside.
  2. Cut bacon into ½-inch pieces. Cook bacon in a skillet until not quite crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. In rendered bacon fat, cook onion until soft but not browned. Drain well.
  3. In a mixing bowl, stir together hominy, beaten eggs, cream, grated cheese, onion, salt, and pepper until well combined. Pour carefully into tortilla shell. Place sliced tomatoes in a single layer on top to cover pie. Top evenly with the bacon.
  4. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until eggs are set and tortillas are nicely browned. Check at 15 minutes, and cover edges with foil or a pie guard if tortilla browns too quickly. Allow to cool 15 minutes before slicing. Slice with sharp knife. May be served at room temperature.
