Southern Hush Puppies

We just love homemade Southern hush puppies!  The mix of corn meal, with a hint of savory onion combined with a little sweetness, makes these absolutely amazing.   They really are good.  I love to whip up a batch when I’m making homemade fish and chips and tartar sauce. The homemade hush puppies sure beat the fast food kind I loved as a kid!  Yum!

Southern Hush Puppies

These hush puppies are a Southern classic. Serve them with classic fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce, and maybe a few good dashes of malt vinegar...and are the super tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of self-rising flour
  • 1 cup of yellow ground corn meal
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup of buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Several good dashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil to 350 F (you can use a large sturdy frying pan, or a deep fryer)
  2. Mix the flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl
  3. Mix in the onions
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg and hot sauce.
  5. Add the dry ingredients with the wet, and mix with a large wooden spoon (or your hands). Don’t over mix! Its okay for there still to be some lumps.
  6. Flour your hands and using a spoon, roll out a ball of the dough (the dough will be sticky…this is why you flour your hands)
  7. Drop the dough into the hot oil. (You might want to shake the pan a bit, to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom during frying)
  8. Continue with the rest of the batter.
  9. Fry until golden brown on the outside…about 7 to 8 minutes (varies depending on the size of the puppies!)
  10. Remove to paper towels and let sit for a few minutes.
  11. Serve warm with lemon, tartar sauce and your favorite Southern fish dish.
  12. Enjoy!
