Howmany Casserole (also, Toomany Casserole)

Howmany Casserole
From: Bumbazine

For four people, assemble;
1 lb ground beef
½ lb mild cheddar cheese
2 (#2) cans golden hominy
1 (#2) can tomato sauce
An onion
Grate the cheese. Sauté the meat in butter, (this is the original recipe, remember), and onions.
Season fairly profusely with;
Salt
Pepper
Paprika
Garlic powder
Oregano
Cumin
& a touch of cayenne.
Drain off all the fat from the meat. Add the tomato sauce (to the meat)
In your casserole dish, place layers of hominy, meat-sauce mixture, and grated cheese. Repeat.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until cheese is thoroughly melted.

As I recall this is really good impoverished student fare, but Wifey doesn't like hominy, so I don't make it anymore.

BTW, my recipe for Toomany Casserole involves hamburger (and onion & garlic), cheddar cheese, chilis, and noodles. Assemble and season just about as you would the Howmany Casserole, only you can leave out the oregano.

These recipes are from an old, old book called The Impoverished Students' Book of Cookery, Drinkery, & Housekeepery, My copy is so old the price on the cover is $1.50!
