This is a good start to any day! Just add a good cup of hot coffee and some juice or fresh fruit when in season.
Step1- Make homemade buttermilk biscuits:
Pre-heat oven to 425 F or 450 F (which ever works best for you)
3 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Sift all these together in a large bowl.
Cut in with a pastry cutter (or fork) about 1/3 cup of vegetable shortening (I never measure this, just go by sight and feel)...mixture will have a crumbly texture.
Add about 1 cup of good quality buttermilk (again, I don't measure, just go by feel and looks).
Place dough on a board that has been dusted with flour, lightly dust the dough with flour, knead until smooth but be careful not to over-work the dough (at this point, if you wish, you can "pinch" off dough and hand roll individual biscuits and put them on the lightly greased baking sheet) then roll out to about 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch with a wooden rolling pin that has been dusted with flour to keep the dough from sticking to it . Cut biscuits with what ever size cutter you like, make sure to "dip" the cutter in flour about every 2 to 3 cuts to keep dough from sticking to it. Place biscuits on a lightly greased cooking sheet. Bake at 425 F to 450 F until medium golden brown (usually about 15 to 20 minutes).
While biscuits are baking, proceed with next steps--
Step 2- You need 2 good skillets. Place about 2 to 3 tablespoons real butter in each skillet. Cook 2 or 3 ham slices (from that ham you cooked for Sunday dinner) in each skillet until lightly browned. Remove, and keep warm. In one skillet, add about 2 to 3 cups of yesterdays cold coffee and stir to get all browned particles from the ham dissolved; reduce heat to low and stir occasionally. Place about 2 cups of hominy into other skillet (add more butter if needed) and brown lightly over low heat. Remove to a bowl and keep warm.
Step 3- Add more butter to "hominy" skillet and heat over med-high heat. Beat 4 eggs with about 1 cup grated cheese (your choice, I like extra sharp), then add to skillet with butter and cook until soft set.
Step 4- Serve and enjoy!
