Hominy Side Dish...(Hotdish)

We had a very wet cool day here in Mid Missouri..  Turning on the oven just sounded like the perfect thing to do...Plus we seem to be on a cheese kick, so any recipe I find that uses cheese or cheese sauce MUST be tried.  "Old Goat" gave this a two thumbs up and he went back for seconds... so.....

Prep: 25 Minutes
Cook: 30 Minutes
Total: 55 Minutes
Servings: 6

1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped onion  (We love onions)
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped red and/or green pepper
5 tablespoons butter, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
dash cayenne pepper
1  cup milk
1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 (15 ounce) can white or yellow hominy, drained reserving 1/4 cup of juice
1/4 teaspoon Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 tablespoon chopped green chili's (Optional)
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
In a skillet, saute onion and green pepper in 3 tablespoons butter until tender. Add flour, salt, mustard, cayenne and hot sauce; cook and stir until smooth and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Gradually add milk and hominy juice; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese until melted.
Remove from the heat; add hominy and (chopped green chili's) if desired. Pour into a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. 

Melt remaining butter and toss with Panko crumbs and lightly brown in skillet; sprinkle over hominy mixture. 

Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes or until golden.  Let cool for for 10 minutes before serving.
