Hush Puppies

02 Apr

Now I’ve always known that Hush Puppies are something you eat.  However, when I was a kid, there was a shoe that came out call Hush Puppies.

It’s a given, I’m not going to be talking about a shoe or better yet, telling you how to make one.

This is the real deal.  Another delicious recipe, that is quick and very simple to make.

Hush Puppies

  • 1 cup Corn Meal
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 5 tbls. Onion, finely chopped *
  • 1 cup Buttermilk (or 3 tbls POWDERED Buttermilk)
  • 1 Egg, beaten well

Mix dry ingredients.  Add remaining ingredients, mixing until smooth.  Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot shortening.  Cook until brown.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve hot as a compliment to main course.

Makes 2 dozen.

This can be served in place of corn bread or anytime you would like a change of pace from biscuits, crescents or dinner rolls.

* Optional (I’m not a fan of onions in Hush Puppies, so I’ve made this optional.  I’ve had it both ways and it’s very delicious either way.)
