This is a very tasty soup to start your meal with. My daddy loved this dish and would sometimes make a meal of it. I think of him everytime I make this. So I am posting this recipe in honor of his memory. I miss you, daddy.

My Husband's Hushpuppies:
In a small bowl mix in cornmeal, flour and salt. Add in enough beer to make it a tad bit soupy but not too soupy. Normally 1/2 to 2/3 can of beer is all you need. Do not overmix. Now drink the remaining beer.
5
Don't stir anymore. Just let it set for about 10 minutes undisturbed.

***NOTE***: You can use tap water rather than beer.
6
Heat shortening or oil. Stir a couple of times and then drop batter into hot grease by a tablespoon. Once they have fried for a few seconds, flip them over. Continue frying until golden brown.
