Crab Hush Puppies

“Hush puppies are a popular fried cornbread fritter here in the South. These Crab Hush Puppies are filled with jumbo lump crab meat, a special seasoning blend, and yellow cornmeal. The addition of jumbo lump crab meat makes them very special indeed. Serve them as an appetizer or as a side at your next fish fry with your favorite seafood dipping sauce.” - Melissa




Pimiento Cheese Hush Puppies

“These Pimiento Cheese Hush Puppies. Y’all, they are amazing. Seriously. The pimiento cheese spread gives them the perfect pop of flavor and cheesy deliciousness. And while I grew up having hush puppies at fish fries and with seafood, they’re seriously perfect for just about any meal you’d serve regular cornbread with.” - Stacey




Tex Mex Hush Puppy Recipe

“I figured it’s time to get in the kitchen and fry something! Which brings me to this hush puppy recipe. It is so very simple. The key is to use self-rising cornmeal AND self-rising flour, that will make the insides tender and fluffy.” - Tanya




Shrimp Hushpuppies

“I thought about having a fish fry ( I love to eat fish and chips) and I was thinking what else I could make with that meal. Hushpuppies will go perfectly!” - Nicole

Hush Puppies with Bacon & Pepper Jack

“Hush puppies with a crispy, golden outside and soft, cornbread inside infused with bacon, pepper jack cheese dunked in the most tantalizing sweet and tangy sweet chili dijon sauce!” - Jen




Hatch Chile Hush Puppies

“No fish fry is complete without hush puppies, right? I made these the other weekend when my family met up at the lake for a back-to-school party for my little brother. I had just been to Central Market and bought roasted hatch chiles during the famous annual hatch chile festival, so I thought they would make delicious hush puppies. They turned out wonderfully fluffy with a crispy outside and tons of flavor!” - Kaleigh




Apple Butter Hush Puppies

“These little pop-in-your-mouth Puppies are sweet, slightly spicy and jam-packed with crisp Apple sticks that make them so moist on the inside and totally crunchy on the outside! Giving us that tender, crunchy Hush Puppy experience we all love!” - Oh Bit It




Zucchini Hush Puppies

“Zucchini Hush puppies are the perfect excuse to use all the zucchini that is overrunning our garden this summer. These little balls of cornmeal and zucchini are so amazingly delicious. You can't eat just one – I dare you! And why would you want to? It's the best of both worlds – healthy vegetables and fried foods – yes, please!” - Angela




Zucchini Hush Puppies

“Shrimp & grits hush puppies are a combination of two of the South's most highly regarded dishes. It doesn't get more Southern than this, especially when paired with the meatballs.” - Thrillist

I have made a similar one to the crab hush puppies and here is a couple of sauces I like with mine. Mix sour cream with lemon juice and dijon mustard and real mayo and sirracha sauce and a little lemon juice. these take them to a whole other level!!

Sandra Skelton, Why did you put that in my head?? I can almost taste it... a little spicey hush puppy and the sweetness of the Blackberry Jam.
So this means that of course, I have to try it tomorrow.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Try some Blackberry Jam with your Hush Puppies and you'll never want to eat them without it again! A friend introduced me to this and at first, I thought, "You can't be serious" but once I tried it, I was hooked!
