I have a question - do you drain the bacon grease from the skillet or cook the hominy and green onions and bacon with the grease?

The bacon definitely makes the hominy much more tasty.

WOW!!!! I think I actually went back for 4ths!!! Finally a veggie that DH and I can both agree on. 2 yr old DD was not a big fan but I don't think she cares for hominy in the first place. This is a once-a-week side for us now.
