This is my basic, quick and easy recipe for my hubby's favorite hush puppies. He says they're better than Long John Silver's. I named them Heavenly Hush Puppies because they are so light and airy, very tender and slightly sweet.

How to Make HEAVENLY HUSH PUPPIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather and prep ingredients.
  2. Into a large dutch oven or stock pot, pour enough oil to fill about 1/3 of the way up to the top (do not overfill; you should have 3 to 4 inches of oil.) Position candy thermometer in oil. Place pot of oil over medium/medium high heat. Oil should be 350` to 375` during entire frying time, so keep a close eye on it. See NOTE.
  3. In a medium size bowl, mix together milk and egg; add muffin mix, flour, cajun seasoning and onions; mix to combine, just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  4. Drop batter, by rounded soup spoonfuls, into hot oil. Do not overcrowd; fry in batches of 6 or 7 at a time, keeping a close eye on the oil temperature. As hush puppies brown, some may turn themselves over; if not use a slotted spoon or spider to flip them over. Hush puppies are done when they are a deep golden brown, about 3 minutes (or so) total frying time.
  5. Use slotted spoon or spider to remove hush puppies to paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in plastic bag or covered container.
  6. *NOTE: If you have a deep fryer, by all means, use it.
