Fried Hush Puppies

Hush puppies are a Southern staple that have found their way into seafood restaurants across the nation. Made from cornmeal, flour, onion, egg and buttermilk, they are mixed until just combined, then rolled and fried in hot oil before resting to cool slightly.

Hush puppies are typically served alongside fried fish, barbecue or crabcakes, but also make a great appetizer anytime. Try them served with cocktail or tartar sauce, or just let the fluffy pups speak for themselves.

Try this easy and delicious recipe and you won’t be disappointed. Every hush puppy comes out fluffy, moist and tender, with the perfect blend of corn, salt and sugar. You’ll have everyone asking for more.

  1. I’ve actually NEVER had hush puppies! I didn’t grow up in the south so we didn’t really have them on the menus in the north! I definitely need to try some 🙂
