The first time I made this a couple of years ago, I wondered how this was going to turn out. It turned out good the first time, and then every time after that. I love it, and I hope you will too.

Serves:

4 to 5 servings

Prep:

10 Min

Ingredients

1 c
yellow cornmeal
3/4 c
self-rising flour
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper
1/2
small, sweet onion, finely chopped
1/2
jalapeno, finely chopped
4
green onions, sliced thin
1
large egg, beaten
1/4 c
grated cheddar
1 c
buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat deep fryer to 375 degrees F. (If you don't have a deep fryer, you can use a cast iron skillet, or a deep-sided electric skill or even a pot with oil, just check the temperature of the oil with a thermometer)
2
Mix all the ingredients together into a large mixing bowl to form a thick batter.
3
Dip 2 tablespoon spoons into water. Using the spoons scoop up some of the batter and drop into the hot oil. ( You can skip this part if you want, and just use a flatware tablespoon and scoop the batter into the oil).
4
Work in batches. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and brown. Remove and drain on a paper towel lined sheet tray.
5
*Note* You don't have to add the jalapeno unless you want to. It will still taste good with the other ingredients.
